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 of 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.

The ARS group is also committed to the training of students in the faculty courses in the area of control system theory and application at Engineering Faculty of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Reggio Emilia branch), with the aim of disseminate the base theory of Automatic Control and merge it with the knowledge achieved as follow up of the applied research with enterprises.
