The Brussels Human Robotics Research Center, BruBotics, is a joint initiative of 8 research groups of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) sharing a common vision: improve our quality of life through Human Robotics. Together we strive to take the next step in Human Robotics by breaking boundaries. By combining expertise in engineering, life, computer and social sciences on the topic of Human Centered Robotics, BruBotics enables cross-boundary and cross-industry innovation opening endless possibilities.
Welcome to an exciting new world...
Fifty-seven academics from the VUB joined forces to jointly think about our robotic future, and the role of us humans therein. The result can be found in the Homo Roboticus book, now available for sale.
With over 100 researchers coming from almost all fields of science, BruBotics offers a unique multidisciplinary approach much needed in such a complex and challenging domain. Working in close collaboration with large-scale companies, research institutes from around the globe, SME's and nonprofit organizations, BruBotics delivers strong solutions where research and valorization go hand in hand.
