Welcome to the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems Research (L-CAS) in the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln.  L-CAS specialises in perception, learning, decision-making, control and interaction for autonomous systems, such as robots, and the integration of these capabilities in application domains including agri-food, healthcare, intra-logistics, intelligent transportation, personal robotics and security. Our ambition is to become one of the world’s great robotics labs, working on technologies for enhancing the quality of life, including the quality of our health, wellbeing and the food we eat.

Our research is currently organised around four major themes:

  • Agri-Food Technology
  • Bio-Inspired Embedded Systems
  • Human-Centred Robotics & Assistive Technology
  • Learning for Autonomous Systems

Learn more about our research projects and meet the robots.
