Research fields

The centre has focused its research on the following fields:

  1. Autonomous vehicles
  2. Extended Reality (Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality)
  3. Robotics
  4. Digital heritage

In an interdisciplinary approach, the Virtual and Robotic Industrial Informatics Center is ready to implement an open vision on industrial informatics and robotics, focusing on the development of autonomous navigation solutions, driver assistance systems, adaptation of robots to industrial environments or digitization of elements of cultural heritage.

Our goal is to develop fundamental and applied research to generate new products and innovative technologies in the business sectors described above.

Our holistic research covers the following areas of activity: Advanced Navigation Systems and Technologies; Human-Robot / Human-Computer Interaction systems based on data fusion, Biopotentials, Digital Cultural Heritage, Haptic Systems and Augmented Reality Mobile Applications.

The Virtual and Robotic Industrial Informatics Center is part of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Automotive and Transportation, and provides doctoral management in the fields of Automotive Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering.

Research areas:

  • Multimodal virtual reality interfaces for engineering applications
  • Development of mechatronic products with cognitive intelligence
  • Design and development of car navigation assistants
  • Software development for advanced design of mechanical systems
  • Conservation of cultural heritage with the help of virtual reality technologies
