Research topics

Automation and robotics

This topic is addressed in terms of both base and applied research.

In the first case, methods and technologies are developed to improve the performance of automatic machines (e.g. reduction of cycle and run times, energy consumption, weight, vibration suppression, increased safety).
In the second case, applied research topics are developed in response to industrial needs such as gripping techniques, quality control, automation of non-standard and complex production processes.
