The Facilities are located in the Polo Sant’Anna Valdera (The BioRobotics Institute’s headquarters). The qualified staff makes available to professors, assistant professors and students high specialization consultancy.
The Mechanical Workshop and the Electronic Lab are managed directly by the Institute. The Clean Room is owned by the Center for the Micro-Biorobotics of the Italian Institute of Technology.
The Mechanical Workshop is a dedicated facility with a specific expertise in Robotics and supporting all Research lines of The BioRobotics Institute. The machanical workshop carries out several activities such as design, prototyping and equipments development. The goal is to support researchers in the realization of mechanical components not available on the market and exploit the equipment to complete the process of the research prototypes.
The Electronic Lab develops integrated electronic systems such as electronic cards that are used to complete the scientific research prototypes. The advanced machinery allow micro-and nano-precision machining in the electronics field.
