About us

Established in 1990 under the guidance of Prof. Marco Ceccarelli, the Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory (LARM: Laboratorio di Robotica e Meccatronica) is based at the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

Our research focuses on the design, analysis, and development of robots and smart devices to improve our everyday life, ranging from low-cost service robots to medical sensors. Our teaching activities focus on robot theory and design, with practical lab activities and exchanges within our international network.

Our interests include robot kinematics, multi-body dynamics, robot design, service robots, medical and rehabilitation robots, and the history of mechanism and machine science.
