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

  1. HRaaS Hub for Healthcare/Hospitality Robotics as a Service research and innovation 
  2. STEAM Hub for STEM with arts/agriculture; an Intelligent Robot (IR) Maker Lab for 3D design and printing of robotic parts. Providing public STEM engagement throughout the UK, Europe, and South-East Asia, with a particular focus on engaging underprivileged groups. 
  3. Autonomous Robotics Lab: applied AI for mobile robots and ROV/AUV, developing AI for remotely operated and autonomous systems.
  4. BioAI-BioEngineering Lab: the interface between biosciences, AI and robotics, exploring the applications of AI and robotics to biomedical problems.

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