Fields of competence
ROBOTNOR represents a unique synergy of academic and industrial expertise which allows us to counsel and comprehend a wide variety of tasks and projects. Our fields of competence are numerous and diverse.
When working with robotic systems, mechatronics is an important tool in your toolbox. If you are designing new manipulators, AGVs, grippers, or sensors, it is crucial to combine the knowledge of mechanics, electronics, control theory, and computer science in an efficient way. ROBOTNOR has researchers with a broad practical and theoretical background and are experienced in designing mechatronic components.
In a few years, snake robots will assist in search and rescue missions after earthquakes and carry out maintenance operations inside process pipes. ROBOTNOR has conducted research on snake robots for several years and is getting closer to realizing the potential of these mechanisms.
