Now Recruiting Faculty for Texas Robotics
Texas Robotics at the University of Texas at Austin invites
applications for tenure-track faculty positions. Outstanding
candidates in all areas of Robotics will be considered.
Student Spotlight: Elena Soto
Elena Soto is a Master's student at Texas Robotics and member of the Rehabilitation and Neuromuscular Robotics Laboratory (ReNue). She is graduating this summer and currently looking for a post-graduate position.
Elena has been developing a system that enables robotic arms to understand human movement and translate it into robotic movement, giving people with spinal cord injuries the ability to perform tasks that they could not otherwise perform. With the potential to transform the lives of people with spinal cord injuries, Elena's work is a testament to the dedication of students at Texas Robotics to make the world a better place.

Robots for Humans - Texas CEO Magazine
A Conversation with Dr. Nicholas Paine and Jeff Cardenas of Apptronik
The two 35-year-olds, who cofounded Apptronik and serve as its Chief Executive and Chief Strategy Officer respectively, didn’t get into the field of robotics to tinker around the edges. In fact, Nicholas told Jeff early on that his greatest fear was Apptronik becoming “a robot vacuum cleaner company.” These native Texans are thinking a lot bigger than an improved Roomba: We’re talking humanoid robots, Iron Man suits, and other innovations that have the potential to transform how humans live.
