We’re the lunatic fringe of robotics.

Dr. Eddie Grant

The Center for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (CRIM) was established in 1992 with the mission of fostering increased interaction in the interdiscplinary technologies of advance robotics and intelligent machines research. The CRIM focuses its research themes to meet its mission within the State as well as nationally and internationally. This is being achieved through various programs of evolution, integration, and collaboration. The changing face of the State’s hi-tech industries motivates the CRIM to broaden its research base to include biotechnology and information technology themes, since these industries are expanding quickly within the State and the nation.
