[HOME] - Introduction
Soft Robotics for Human Cooperation and Rehabilitation
A dynamic environment where the most advanced understandings of natural motor control and the most innovative technologies of robotics proceed in parallel
The lab counts on outstanding equipment and facilities, including most modern commercial robotic systems, motion and electromyography capture. We design, develop and fabricate our own experimental apparatuses with state-of-the-art CNC, laser cutting, and 3D printing technologies. The group has a keen interest in technology transfer and transformation of IP into economic value. We adopt the EU Open Source/Open Data strategy, and share most of our experimental data, code, and design on collaborative research platforms such as the Hand Corpus and the Natural Machine Motion Initiative.

Joint Lab IIT - Intellimech
[2020 - Ongoing] - This joint laboratory results from the partnership with some of the main innovation players in Bergamo, a highly industrial and technological province. The joint lab, name JOiiNT LAB, is promoted by Intellimech, a consortium of companies aiming at fostering technology transfer and creating a synergy between the world of research and industrial needs.
[2011 - Ongoing] - Qbrobotics is an Italian company founded in 2011 as a spin-off from IIT and Centro di Ricerca "E. Piaggio" from Università di Pisa, which aims to foster innovation and drive the diffusion of the pioneering technologies that will propel the next generation of robots. The future of robotics is soft, which means that technology should bring current tools closer to human beings. Soft robotic technologies is the next step in the direction of safe and high-performance engineering and qbrobotics aims to free these groundbreaking technologies from a constrained scientific environment and bring them to everyone daily life.
