  • Reaches across the Navy, Marine Corps, Department of Defense, academia, and industry

  • Collaborative environment for the advancement of unmanned systems education and research endeavors

  • Community of interest for unmanned systems in military and naval operations

  • Encompasses the successful research, education, and experimentation efforts in unmanned systems

  • An inclusive community for all disciplines

  • Conducts concept generation workshops for naval missions

  • Hosts technical symposia to address naval missions, and field experimentation to test selected technologies

At the direction of the Secretary of the Navy, the Naval Postgraduate School leverages its long-standing experience and expertise in the research and education of robotics and unmanned systems to support the Navy's mission. The Consortium for Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education and Research (CRUSER) serves as a vehicle to align currently disparate research efforts and integrate academic courses across discipline boundaries. CRUSER Charter Document (2017)

NPS RoboDojo Website

The RoboDojo is located in Root Hall 125 A/B (On the library end of Root Hall)

The RoboDojo is a dynamic innovation space (located on NPS campus in Root Hall, Room 125) where students, staff, faculty, and friends can come 'tinker' and learn about robot components and systems. Whether you're five or seventy-five years old, the RoboDojo is designed to promote informal hands-on learning with open hours and volunteer mentors to help the NPS community learn about:

  • rapid prototyping (e.g, with 3D printers and laser cutters);
  • embedded computing (e.g., with Arduino and Raspberry Pi);
  • basic electronics (e.g., with various electronics and breadboard components);
  • robotic software programming (e.g., for Robot Operating System in Python);
  • and more!  

The RoboDojo also hosts various community-led workshops, including recent gatherings on topics ranging from Basics of Solidworks, Intro to Printed Circuit Boards, to Laser Cutting and Engraving, and a Raspberry Pi Workshop.  The RoboDojo represents a grassroots initiative to promote collaborative and community learning, so feel free to stop by and learn about robots!
