ERAU Space Robotics Laboratory

Welcome to the Space Robotics Laboratory at ERAU Prescott

The Robotics Program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott Campus provides a strong undergraduate education with a focus on the design of robotic systems for aerospace applications such as autonomous ground, air, or space vehicles. The robotics curriculum combines a strong emphasis on the fundamentals of engineering kinematics, dynamics, and controls with integrated analysis and design topics ranging from robotics real-time control, sensor integration, probabilistic robotics and mechatronics. Numerous hands-on lab and design experiences using industrial hardware and real-time software provide students the opportunity to use their knowledge, test their analysis, and work in a team environment.


Laboratory Equipment


The new Space Robotics Laboratory support all the robotics courses and research activities, and feature indoor and outdoor testing areas, enabling the development of stationary, mobile, and aerial robotic platforms. The laboratory is located in rooms 107, 108, and 109 of the new STEM Education Center, which is part of the Embry Riddle Aeronautical University strategic plan.
