Robotics research concerns areas such as the robot's precision, ability to learn and senses – touch, hearing and vision. Robotisation, the automation of production and new kinds of fixtures are other important areas, as are other areas such as how well small and medium-sized enterprises keep up with developments in the field of robotics.

Robotics gathers together leading research within areas such as automatic control, computer vision, vehicle systems, artificial intelligence, visualisation and industrial production. 

LiU is also home to the Wallenberg AI Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP AI), the largest ever individual research venture in Sweden. Researchers within WASP are focusing on autonomous systems, which often involve robots, and software development.
