Robotics Lab

Facilities

Stäubli Robotics Laboratoryrlab1
The Stäubli Robotics Laboratory houses eight  industrial robotic arms that were provided to USC Upstate by the Stäubli Corporation and J&J Industrial Services. Several Computer Science courses are offered, which not only provide hands-on working knowledge of these machines, but also teaches the theoretical underpinnings of such technologies.

A unique relationship has been forged with SEW Eurodrive, a leading company in the field of drive engineering, establishing the SEW Eurodrive Research Assistantship Award. This award pays a student research assistant to work with Dr. Sebastian van Delden on research projects in the lab. Awards are available every Spring and Fall. SEW also provided funding every year to support Robotics Summer Camps and the purchase of additional lab materials.

Paid internship programs have also been establishing with robotics industries in the region.

To view videos of robotics projects and read more about robotics research at USC Upstate, please visit Dr. Sebastian van Delden's homepage: http://faculty.uscupstate.edu/svandelden.

Networking Lab
nlab
A networking lab facilitates instruction in local and wide area networking, providing the resources for hands-on application of the theoretical concepts that are studied.

Linux Lab
linux lab
The Linux lab in the Hodge Building Room 247 is home to a six-unit Linux cluster. These machines are available to both the faculty and students and their usage has also been incorporated in the Computer Science Curriculum.

Classrooms & Walk-In Labs
classroom
Almost all of our classrooms are equipped with ceiling-mounted video-data projectors, internet connection, and document cameras. In addition, there are three computer classrooms, each equipped with 24 student stations, a laser printer, and an instructor’s station with software that enables the instructor to control the student computers in the classroom through the campus network. The G. B. Hodge Center, home of the Division of Mathematics and Computer Science, has two walk-in computer labs open to students while the building is open. Each has 12 Pentium personal computers equipped with Windows XP Professional, Office XP, and all of the mathematics and computer software used in classes.

Undergraduate Research Lab
Undergraduate students who assist professors in conducting research benefit tremendously. They graduate with enhanced: analytical and communication skills; knowledge of a specific discipline; work etiquette. The lab houses Mathematics and Computer Science students who are:

  • Undergraduate Research Assistants supported by research grant funds
  • Participating in an Internship
  • Taking an Independent Study
