More about Robotics at IRT Jules Verne


Robotics is an important driver of competitiveness for manufacturers. Our robotics research team adapts major scientific innovations in a complex industrial environment in order to meet the challenges of production rate and performance.

IRT Jules Verne develops its own technological bricks and integrates the bricks from academic and manufacturing environments. Out team delivers demonstrators tailored to the needs of manufacturers and production support tools that can be quickly deployed in the factory. These specific tools take into account the constraints of robustness, production rates and ergonomics for a flexible and intelligent industry.


Researchers rely on a robotics and cobotics research platform, together with its network of strategic partners (INRIA, CNRS, Europe Technologies, and Clarté, among others). The research team dedicated to robotics consists in 25 engineers and doctors. They work in close collaboration with the metal and composites process teams as well as the simulation and characterisation teams to provide a comprehensive solution for manufacturers.
