Welcome to the Sensing & Robotics for Infrastructure (SRI) Lab@UCLA!

We are the Sensing and Robotics for Infrastructure lab, SRI. Our overarching research goal is to better understand and quantify the condition and remaining useful life of civil and mechanical infrastructure systems through the intelligent use of sensors and data. In pursuit of this, we are pioneering sensing systems that can measure the state of infrastructure non-destructively above and below ground as well as in aquatic environments. In addition, we are developing analytical and algorithmic tools needed to process, interpret and transform sensor data into actionable information. You will find here information regarding the ground-based and water-based robots we have developed which can enable a wide range of inspection related tasks for civil infrastructure, a novel IoT inspired leak detection system for water distribution networks and signal processing algorithms to enable condition assessment of rotating machinery and bridges using vibration data.

Our lab is in the midst of its cross continental move from the University of Waterloo (SDIC Lab) to UCLA and we are excited to start a new phase for our newly re-branded lab.

Prospective PhD students and postdocs: Please email with your CV to snarasim at ucla dot edu. Due to the volume of enquiries, we will only reply if there is a match. All positions in our lab will be at UCLA.
