Robot Safety & Edge Computing for Robotics Over 5G Wireless

Associate Professor Ludovic Righetti and his team at NYU WIRELESS investigate novel control and perception algorithms for robotic drones, legged robots and manipulators and study how 5G & 6G wireless communication can be leveraged to improve robot autonomy. Watch the video below to learn more.

5G and 6G wireless communication offer a unique opportunity to create truly ubiquitous and autonomous robots that can be deployed anywhere, from home environments to warehouses or construction sites, and potentially extreme environments such as nuclear power plants or disaster sites by offering low latency and high data bandwidth communication capabilities to coordinate large numbers of robots, efficiently offload computations to the network edge with performance guarantees, facilitate data intensive multi-robot learning and improve interactions with human operators.
