Creative Robotics Lab (CRL)

Expanding Social and Assistive Robotics through creative experimentation

CRL examines human interactions with three-dimensional robotic agents and responsive structures within the context of experimental arts and social robotics. Founded by director Associate Professor Mari Velonaki, the lab aims to provide a structured environment that facilitates the creation of experimental interfaces and the promotion of human-robot interaction in physical spaces.

CRL, launched in 2013, is in partnership with the School of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), the School of Psychology at the University of New South Wales, and the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) at the University of Sydney.
