Build a better future with robots.

YF Robotics Laboratory (YFRL) is an international robotics organisation. YFRL was founded with the vision that robots will contribute to humanity and largely affect the way how people will live in the future. Our mission is to promote STEM and robot education and bring ideas to the public with state-of-the-art robot research and technologies across the world.


We are a group of people from worldwide who love robots. We aim to bring together robot researchers, developers and enthusiasts to build a world with more intelligent, reliable and safer robots.


Please join us by telling us which robot sections you are involved in and what you may be able to contribute to the organisation at


We use solutions from Microsoft, BBC Micro:bit, Raspberry Pi Foundation and opensource projects to promote STEM education and help primary/secondary students to participate in building future technology.

We fund middle school and high school students from UK, US and China to travel across and co-work in local schools/universities on a collaborate robot project. We cooperate with university labs to enhance students’ experience.

We help and encourage makers and companies with their STEM products for robot/electronics/programming education.

We produce robot materials, tutorials and books for entry and mid-level robot learners.


We work and publish papers in the research area of:

  • Machine learning
  • Reinforcement and transfer learning
  • SLAM
  • Operating systems and task scheduling for robots
  • Dexterous robot hand
  • Self-driving cars
  • Safety for autonomous systems
  • Swarm robots

We hope our research can contribute to the future development of robotics.


We love opensource, and we extensively work on industrial robots and make innovations using opensource software and hardware, that includes:

  • gnu/gcc
  • git
  • gitbook
  • Linux
  • WordPress
  • ROS/Gazebo
  • Arduino
  • BBC Micro:bit
  • Raspberry Pi
  • and many more …
