As one of the flagship research clusters at the Cardiff School of Technologies, EUREKA Robotics Centre is the innovative research hub nested in the School of Technologies, Cardiff Metropolitan University, serving Wales and global stakeholders. EUREKA has the meaning of “exclamation of satisfaction on discovering something, solving a problem, finding a solution with fun and engaging experience”:


Partnering with Wales, England and international collaborators from companies and universities, the Centre is specialising in Service and Social Humanoid Robotics, with the below research strands and expertise: 

  1. RobotiCare Lab for healthcare and hospitality
  2. STEAM Lab for STEM with arts; an Intelligent Robot (IR) Maker Lab for 3D design and printing robots
  3. Autonomous Robotics Lab: fundamental machine learning and applied AI for mobile robots and ROV/AUV
  4. BioAI Lab: the interface between biosciences, AI and robotics

Grounding on the machine learning techniques and data visualisation & analytics capabilities, the Centre aims to educate and R&D robot applications to the real world, from the world-class research inquiry and education innovation.
