Welcome


Service and Industrial Robotics

Research Group of the Division of Robotics of the
Institute of Industrial and Control Engineering

The group SIR performs the research activity in industrial and service robotics following traditional approaches as well as new paradigms where the robots are allowed to work safely alongside humans in such a way that they become collaborative coworkers and fellows in the factory floor and at home. In this scope, the research work of the group is mainly focused on transversal tools for dexterous, mobile and cooperative manipulation as well as for robot teleoperation. The list of addressed topics includes control and communications through the Internet, relational positioning, vision systems and 3D augmented reality, automatic synthesis of grasps, telemanipulation, programming by demonstration, human-like motion planning, simultaneous task and motion planning, and physics-based manipulation planning. Typical tools used in this research are haptic devices, mobile platforms, industrial robots, dual-arm robots, mechanical hands and sensory systems.
