IEEE Robotics and Automation Society IEEE

Technical Committees

Technical Committees (TC) focus on the research content of the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society by tracking technical developments and encouraging innovation in: applications, theory, models, metrics, experiments, architectures, products, initiatives, and other technical areas.

With over 30 Technical Committees, research in specific areas is encouraged. New Technical Committees are added as a topic area is grows, becomes increasingly relevant, sufficiently outside the scope of existing TCs.

Technical Committees are an important benefit of membership, allowing for further collaboration and communication within subsets of the field.

Technical Committee Volunteers can access information within the TC Resource Center.
