Robotics and Advanced Mechanisms ORBITAL

Our main research focuses on highly dynamic and efficient robotics. Our goal is to create  technology to enable safe physical Human-Robot Interaction for healthcare, mobility, space, defense or entertainment applications. We also seek to solve major challenges for humanity, both on our planet and beyond it, by developing technology for water extraction in dry environments, or space transformation.  Our ambition is to respond to major current and future challenges, such as climate change, aging population or scarcity of basic resources, such as water. Our research has a multidisciplinary approach in areas such as:

robotic actuators for agile and efficient robots

Robots with high dynamic efficiency and agility for human-robot interaction.

Research in robotic actuators with high dynamic efficiency and wide bandwidth in control that enable the creation of agile and efficient robots. We develop models, prototypes and algorithms for electrical machines capable of producing high torque with high efficiency and high dynamic and thermal behavior. We design and manufacture high dynamic efficiency actuators in which we integrate our own technology in electrical machines, mechanical transmissions, sensors, electronics and control.

  • Objective: To create robots capable of achieving high levels of efficiency and agility for collaborative robotics.

Neuromorphic technology to provide information to habitat models

New neuromorphic multimodal vision system to predict the presence of marine animals

Research and development of a high-resolution, non-invasive model to predict the presence of animals in a marine environment using a new neuromorphic multimodal vision system that will provide new layers of information. Neuromorphic technology will be used at both the hardware and software levels, with the aim of providing information to habitat models that is not currently available from any other data source.

  • Objective: to make accurate spatio-temporal predictions concerning the presence of species in the marine habitat using neuromorphic visual systems.

Technology to increase the space transportation capabilities

Propulsion technology for space exploration

We seek solutions to the problems that limit the full potential of space exploration. We study alternative and innovative means of achieving thrust while minimizing the constraints related to efficiency and the amount of fuel required in space.

  • Objective: to develop propulsion technology that will increase the space transportation capabilities of the human species.

technologies to mitigate water scarcity

Technology to generate water under adverse conditions

We develop cutting-edge technologies to mitigate water scarcity, with the capability to generate water in a reliable and efficient manner under adverse conditions. These technologies are being developed both in the digital domain and experimentally.

  • Objective: to develop technologies capable of mitigating the effects of desertification and droughts caused by climate change.
