The research group works on predictable and safe components for automotive and industrial automation systems:
- analysis and design of advanced robotic end-effectors with particular attention to the sensory system and control architecture
- nonlinear control applied to robotic systems interacting with the environment (impedance/force control, telemanipulation)
- design of methods, based on dynamic filters, for optimal trajectory planning for electro‐mechanical systems and robots under kinematic and dynamic constraints
- design of control architectures for industrial applications, based on repetitive control and iterative learning methods.
