The Waterloo RoboHub is a state-of-the-art research, testing, and training facility, housed in the brand new Engineering 7 building at the University of Waterloo, Canada. With a unique fleet of robots, including fixed-base, wheeled, aerial, maglev, and humanoid robots, RoboHub enables innovative research on multi-robot and human-robot teams.

In this webinar, Dr. Brandon DeHart, Manager of the Waterloo RoboHub, will give us a tour of the Waterloo RoboHub, explain what the RoboHub is all about, what kinds of research questions are being evaluated by the RoboHub's research team, and how it all relates to undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education in Mechatronics on the University of Waterloo campus.

Join us on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at 2 pm EDT (US & Canada).
