Agile & Dexterous Robotics Lab. (ADRL),
Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems (IRIS),
ETH Zürich

ADRL is located at the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETHZ). The team seeks to understand what it takes for machines, animals and humans to move around complex environments with agility and manipulate them with dexterity. Thus, its research focuses on achieving robust, dynamic, agile and autonomous robotic control in unstructured environments by means of model based control, force and impedance control, and applied machine learning, with applications to mobile manipulation, grasping, legged locomotion, prosthetics, field robotics, and bio-inspired robotics.
