Research Bernoulli Institute Autonomous Perceptive Systems Research Themes


Contact person: prof. dr. Raffaella Carloni

The Robotics group develops systems that are intended to physically interact with uncertain dynamic environments and to cooperate with humans. The group’s main focus is the de- velopment of novel actuation systems, which are the key enabling components for motion generation. The work is accomplished by developing mechanical designs and intelligent (model-based or model-free) control architectures. The main research lines are: 1. Lower-limb prosthetic devices (mechatronic design, modeling, control, experimental validation) and 2. Bio-inspired soft robots/actuators (mechatronic design and fabrication, modeling, control, experimental validation). Apart from the fundamental scientific problems and the goal of advancing the state of the art, the group considers societal relevance very important. This plays a role in the involvement of patients, hospitals, relevant companies in the biomedical field, and multidisciplinary stakeholders in other relevant research domains.
