Who Are We?

The Multi-Agent Bio-Robotics (MABL) laboratory is a research laboratory at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) led by Dr. Ferat Sahin. MABL started in 2000 when Dr. Ferat Sahin joined RIT. Since then, with the collaboration of several doctoral and a dozen graduate students, MABL has been on the cutting edge of robotics research and aims to push that boundary further. At MABL, research branches out to many fields within robotics. Many of them are assistive technologies, human-robot collaboration, machine learning, industrial robotics, computer vision and more. Current research at MABL involves system of systems simulation and modeling, swarm intelligence, robotics, MEMS materials modeling, distributed computing, decision theory, pattern recognition, distributed multi-agent systems, and structural bayesian network learning.
