Thank you to our current Industry Affiliate Partners. 

IAP Logos


The Texas Robotics Industrial Affiliates Program (IAP) provides a gateway for university researchers and the private sector to explore fundamental research topics of mutual interest. Companies gain direct access to state-of-the-art research capabilities and infrastructure in exchange for annual membership fees. IAPs are also a unique opportunity for multiple companies to come together to support a collective research enterprise in an area of their choosing across a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: medical robotics, mobile autonomous robotics, human-robot interaction, and robot manipulation. 

Because IAPs are dedicated to fundamental, early-stage research, members receive limited intellectual property rights. This also means that members can engage with the university’s research programs and relevant faculty and students without paying institutional indirect costs or overhead.
