Carnegie Mellon: The World’s Premier Robotics Institute?

If you’re searching for the world’s best robotics research facility, you won’t find it in Silicon Valley, Boston, or Seattle. You’ll also be on the wrong path if you look anywhere inside Japan, China, Taiwan, or Germany.
To find the world’s premier robotics lab you’ll have to travel to Pittsburgh, a city better known for its once-thriving steel industry, Iron City Beer, and legendary baseball and football teams than its high-tech research. Once in town, head for Carnegie Mellon University and you’ll soon see more robots doing more things than just about anywhere in the world
