Welcome to Robotics and Mechatronics
Robotics and Mechatronics (formerly Control Engineering) deals with application of modern systems and control methods to practical situations. Focus is on robotics, as a specific class of mechatronic systems. The research is embedded in the CTIT and MIRA institutes. The research of the group is application oriented. Main goal is to investigate the applicability of modern systems and control methods to practical situations in the area of robotics.
Robot application areas we investigate are: inspection robotics; medical robotics (assistance to surgeons); service robotics (street cleaning, service to people).
The science and engineering topics we work on are: modeling and simulation of physical systems; intelligent control; robotic actuators; embedded control systems.
In our lab we have quite a variety of robotic setups: basic 1 or 2 motor systems, precise motion control platforms, a production cell-like block circulator, wheeled mobile robots and humanoid walking robots.
