The Laboratory of Robotics and Learning Technologies supports both the teaching and research of robotics and learning technologies. This laboratory has software and hardware technologies that are both independently produced (e.g. rolling pins, tiles) and acquired through open source and proprietary initiatives for creating robotic environments. The laboratory also has tools for observing interactive behaviours.
