We actively contribute to the modern robotics research comunity for more than two decades. Our research includes almost all brances of robotics research, from kinematics and dynamics, control of mechanisms, robotic vision, up to service robotics. We also implement demanding automatization and robotization tasks, which surpass standard and easily applicable sollutins. We apply new, innovative, and alternative approaches to the sollution.
In the last years we do active research in the field of environmental physiology. We do reseach on the effects of environment on humans and testing of special and specialized equipment under normal and special curcumstances.
We are developing robots intended for helping people in their natural environments, such as their homes. This requires the development of robotic systems, which can autonomously act in unstructured, human-centered environments. Only robots capable of continuously acquiring new sensorimotor skills and abstract knowledge without expert help are capable of taking such a role. Their design and human-like shape makes humanoid robots especially suitable for such applications.
