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.

Robots aid in remanufacturing

Remanufacturing is a way to preserve the value of products that have already been manufactured. Researchers at Linköping University, LiU, have shown the potential of automation in repair and remanufacturing.

AI helping robots to make safe real-time decisions

If robots are to move among people in everyday life, they must be able to make decisions in real time, without human help. WASP doctoral student Olov Andersson describes in his thesis investigations into three different methods of learning.
