Hong Kong Centre for Logistics Robotics (HKCLR)
Director: Professor Yunhui Liu
Co-director: Professor Masayoshi Tomizuka
Non-local Collaborating Institution: University of California, Berkeley
The Hong Kong Centre for Logistics Robotics (HKCLR) was established with research contributions from the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley). The Centre focuses on the research and development (R&D) of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for future workplaces as well as innovative solutions to the pressing problems in the logistics industry. In particular, it aims to advance robot intelligence in terms of smart perception, smart interactions, smart manipulation; and smart moving.
The research team is composed of distinguished professors from CUHK and UC Berkeley, and accomplished Ph.D. degree holders across world-leading universities. The Centre is dedicated to pursuing innovative breakthroughs in ready-for-use robotics and AI technologies via close collaboration with academic and industrial stakeholders throughout Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area (GBA), and mainland China. It is expected that the Centre will foster the leading role of the local logistics industry in the GBA and mainland China, meanwhile enhancing its competitive edge in the global arena.
