The Robotics and Mechatronics (RaM) group is active on both fundamental and application-driven topics in the field of robotics.
(Physical) modelling, dynamical systems, control, sensors, actuators, real-time (embedded) software, computer vision, and systems design are the research topics. We develop novel fundamental paradigms and physically based methodologies, which we then translate in the Lab into demonstrators and prototypes.
We are a highly multidisciplinary group devoted to study novel technologies for real applications related to healthcare, and in particular to disease diagnosis, robotic and image-guided surgery, and prosthetics. A key challenge is to find and develop technology solutions that are robust, clinically usable, and safe for real-life applications. This involves closely working with clincians and healtchcare companies, and the unique collaboration with the TechMed and DSI Institutes.
The key objective is to translate our technology from the lab to clinical environment in order to enable accurate, quick, and minimally invasive procedures for a better, safer and more efficient clinical care.
