Our research line focuses on Assistive Robotics, to study and develop service robots able to provide assistance to human’s daily life. Service robot is an autonomous machine that operates semi - or fully - autonomously to perform tasks in unstructured environment. Moreover, the increasing availability of networks expands the possibilities of Internet and Network Robotics - a field in which we pioneered since 1999 - to the new field of Cloud Robotics. Another line of research is Educational Robotics. It is accounted for by the necessity to prepare and educate our citizenship on the coming robotics revolution that is going to affect our society deeply and dramatically. A consequent, interdisciplinary field in which we are involved is Roboethics, that deals with the Ethical, Legal, and Societal Issues in Advanced Robotics.
