Robotics & Autonomous Systems Research Group

Our research focusses on enabling automated systems and intelligent robotics with improved efficiency and awareness.

Autonomous systems and mechatronics has been established as a key technology in developing many intelligent systems, in particular for consumable projects.

We're home to the Space Mechatronic Systems Technology (SMeSTech) laboratory, which not only have on earth application but support sustainable and peaceful space exploitations.

Our Robotics & Autonomous Research Group is active in:

  • generating novel conceptual solutions and applying various technology, for challenges that require high intelligence, fast response and efficiency
  • providing application in various areas including food & drink, agricultural industries and health
