UTARI’s Automation and Intelligent Systems efforts are focused on the areas of robotics automation for development and prototyping of novel and advanced products.
UTARI's Automation and Intelligent Systems Division focuses on the development and the application of technologies. Whether it is the improvement of existing devices by adding technologies or the development of new devices, the goal is to offer people smart assistance in the performance of dirty, dull and dangerous tasks. The division's mission is to enable product development by providing a rapid, low cost, and reliable transition path for fundamental technologies to reach the market. The Automation and Intelligent Systems Division inherits its unique technical knowledge from years of analytics and experimental research in the field of industrial robotics that has evolved through a series of ground breaking accomplishments, including:
The division works closely with UT Arlington faculties as well as other universites, research institutes, and small & large industries across the nation to identify and transition innovative ideas into novel or improved products for a wide range of markets including bio-medical instruments, low volume manufacturing systems, environmental sensing devices, autonomous platforms, and more. Our activities span across health innovations, technologies for an improved built and social environment, water conservation, and big data management for wide-scale sensor fusion; reflecting UT Arlington's guiding themes for becoming a 21st century urban university.
The division's activities reflect UT Arlington's guiding themes by addressing global changes through projects such as UAS/UGV environmental sensing, integrating smart and connected technologies to improve the built and social environment, furthering health innovations with the use of assistive robotics, and by analyzing and applying data from Human Robot Interaction. The work performed in the Robotics Division combines the talents and expertise of our full-time researchers, affiliated UTA faculty, and UTA students. UTARI helps advance basic research into applied research in order to prepare the technology or product for commercialization, and ultimately into the marketplace.
