A range of high-quality resources for Electronic Engineering and Computer Science are available on the web. For subject specific resources look at these guides:
- Ericson Mar's Robotic Links: A very comprehensive list of links to a wealth of robotics information.
- Homebrew Robotics Lectures: A robotic enthusiast group from Silicon Valley, which gathers beginners, experts and professionals. They have posted some useful videos from their meetings.
- Inbots: European Union funded project which is aiming to promote and set up collaborations around interactive robotics.
- Karakuri.info: Providing information about the Japanese tradition of mechanical dolls.
- NASA – Robotics: Videos and other multimedia covering NASA's work with robotics, such as the lunar rover.
- Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI): Searchable index of many topics, from US government; gives access to a significant number of freely available reports and presentation around robotics.
- QUT Robot Academy: Over 200 freely available lessons about aspects of robotics.
- Robocup: Created to encourage robotic research. Now lots of events are organised to support their mission themes.
- Robohub: Platform which aims to connect experts within business and universities.
- Robots - Your guide to the world of robotics: An initiative from IEEE, where they present different types of robots from various part of the world with useful information about the projects.
- Soft Robotics Toolkit: Resource created in a cooperation between Harvard University and Trinity College Dublin, centring around soft robotics, focusing especially on medical applications.
