ROBOTICS – Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics

In its varied and interdisciplinary forms, robotics will have short and long term effects on important areas of our business and everyday life, as well as on classical industrial production.

JOANNEUM RESEARCH utilizes ROBOTICS to address the current needs of the economy for applied research on Technologies, which interface between the digital and the real world.

The main areas of expertise in the institute focus primarily on human-robot collaborations and interactions that occur in innovative production processes, as well as the subject of robot safety. In addition, mobile robots in the areas of industrial manufacturing, logistics and in general service robots are important issues.

ROBOTICS – Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics is located in Klagenfurt/Wörthersee.
