IEEE Robotics and Automation Society

The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (IEEE RAS) is a professional society of the IEEE, the world's largest professional association for the advancement of technology. The purpose of this group is to allow members to share news, developments, and opportunities in robotics and automation and to provide a forum for discussion.

The society strives to advance innovation, education, and fundamental and applied research in Robotics and Automation. Robotics focuses on systems incorporating sensors and actuators that operate autonomously or semi-autonomously in cooperation with humans. Robotics research emphasizes intelligence and adaptability to cope with unstructured environments. Automation research emphasizes efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability, focusing on systems that operate autonomously, often in structured environments over extended periods, and on the explicit structuring of such environments.
