ARS, the Automation, Robotics and System Control at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia is a group of researchers who has as primary focus the research on application of control theory, robotics and automation.

The group is active since 2001 at the Department of Science and Methods for Engineering, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, with several projects in the areas of:

  • Robotics (traffic control of mobile robots, control of multirobot system, teleoperation and visual servoing).
  • Automation (Modeling of control software with UML, mechatronic machine modeling with SysML).
  • System Modeling and Control (modeling of mechanical system for control, Prognostics for industrial machineries).

A distinctive aspect of the ARS researches is in the willingness of constructing strong link between industry and academia, seeking to set up strong cooperation to tackle real technical problem faced everyday by application engineering in industry with innovative methodologies and solutions from academia.
