The mission of RAS-SIGHT is the application of robotics and automation technologies for promoting humanitarian causes around the globe, and to leverage existing and emerging technologies for the benefit of humanity and towards increasing the quality of life in underserved, underdeveloped areas in collaboration with existing global communities and organizations. IEEE RAS-SIGHT was approved by the Society's Administrative Committee at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in St. Paul in May 2012. In September 2012, the IEEE Humanitarian Ad Hoc Committee (HAHC) approved the formation of RAS-SIGHT. IEEE RAS is the first and only IEEE Society to have a SIGHT!

Participation is welcome to those applying robotics and automation technologies for humanitarian causes.
