  • CRET
    The Center for Rehabilitation Engineering and Technology is a unique interdisciplinary approach, which incorporates service delivery, research and academic programs in order to provide quality technology interventions for individuals with disabilities. To develop integrated rehabilitation robotic systems that will increase employment of individuals with disabilities. The labs associated with this center include mobility systems, workstation and wheelchair-mounted rehabilitation robotics, vehicle modification systems, motion analysis lab and capstone design systems.

    The Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue (CRASAR) is a Type II Center at the University of South Florida, with Dr. Robin Murphy as the overall Director. It serves as crisis response and research organization which strives to direct and exploit new technology development in robotics and unmanned systems for humanitarian purposes worldwide. It was originally established under the auspices of NIUSR (National Institute for Urban Search and Rescue), and participated in the WTC response, deploying robots on Towers 1 and 2, Building 4, and other areas from the early morning of 9/12/2001 through 10/2/2001. Our mission is to serve existing rescue organizations by providing deployable robot-assisted search and rescue teams on order, certifying and training SAR personnel on operationally relevant robot systems, evaluating emerging robot technologies, and fostering research into SAR-specific robot systems.

  • NNRC
