Robotic Surgery

The core of ALTAIR

From its very beginning the lab has always focused on robotic surgery, a discipline that has now become an essential help during surgical interventions.

Collaborative Robots

Towards 4.0 Industry

Human-robot collaboration has an important role in smart factories since it contributes to the achievement of higher productivity and greater efficiency.

In the Altair Laboratory, research is carried out on automatic process modeling of collaborative processes and on obstacle avoidance. Recognizing the phases of a collaborative process can be useful for developing more efficient security and assistance systems in an Industry 4.0 perspective. We work also on the optimization of trajectory for surface recognition

Robotics for Education

Connecting with younger generations

Educational robotics improves student’s communication, collaboration and teamwork skills thanks to a fun and engaging learning environment.

Educational robotics provides effective learning tools for students in various fields: computer programming, computer vision, mathematics, physics, electronics.
The educational robotics kits we are using (e.g. Lego Mindstorms) allow testing different technologies in the field of robotics: sensors, motors, joint structures, medical robotics, mobile robotics.

Another objective of the Altair Laboratory is to show the potential of robotics through organized events: European Robotics Week, Kids University, alternation school-work for high school scholars, robotic classes.

Rehabilitation and assistive Robotics

Understanding and augmenting rehabilitation through the application of robotic devices.
