iitThe mission of the Center of Space Human Robotics (CSHR) is to study, design and realize demonstrators for the future generation of materials, processes and components for space human robotics, where locomotion and manipulation, sensing and perception, intelligence and communication with humans are the basic requirements. The development of these basic functions needs technologies applied to structural and functional components combined to compact and flexible energy supply systems. These novel technologies can also be fruitfully used in terrestrial robotic systems and in several industrial applications.

The activities are organized in three research platforms: Robotics, Smart Materials and Energy
