There are few Robotics Research Labs/Centres in Singapore. Although, this is not the comprehensive list but the list below provides some information on robotics labs/centres in Singapore(in random order);
#1 Robotics Research Centre (RRC), Nanyang Technological University (NTU)
Robotics Research Centre (RRC) was established in May 1994 with a start-up fund of S$1.68 million. The RRC is jointly managed and funded by the School of Computer Engineering (SCE), the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), and School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE).
The main objectives of the RRC are:
- to consolidate, focus and accelerate robotic research activities within the University;
- to bring together researchers and academics in the area of robotics into a conducive environment equipped with state-of-the-art research facilities;
- to cooperate with industrial partners and government agencies in fields of strategic importance to robotics;
- to provide consultancy services to local industry in robotics and related areas

#3.CENTRE FOR ROBOTICS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE , Singapore Polytechnic (SP)
The Centre specializes in development of cutting edge technologies including navigation and mapping in dynamic environments, object recognition and manipulation, human robot interaction, human intent recognition, adaptive behaviours, ambient intelligence, standardization and system integration. Our students participate in local and international robotics competitions winning numerous awards over the years and we have been one of the top players over the years. We have participated in RoboCup in the soccer and @home leagues; in Singapore Robotics Games we participated in pole balancing, intelligent robot, and wall climbing challenges.
