Robots...powerful potential

Grasping Opportunities

An ageing workforce, an ever increasing demand for higher productivity, a relentless war for talents, a need for better but also more efficient care,...our industry and society is faced with an ever increasing pressure to innovate and find ways to allow people to reach their full potential.

We believe robotics can be part of the solution, and BruBotics has the tools and expertise to guide you.

  • From measuring mental and physical fatigue or energy expenditure to see where robots might alleviate workloads,
  • to co-creation and acceptance studies to design and implement an effective solution where robots are seen as friends and not as enemies.
  • From improving state of the art robotic systems, to developing the next generation of exoskeletons, Artificial Intelligence or social robots.
  • From understanding the needs of our ageing population and older people, to the use of robotics for neurological revalidation.

At BruBotics we aim for a stronger collaboration with partners outside the academic world. We want our research to benefit society. As such, we are always looking for "real-world" challenges where revolutionary technologies such as robotics and A.I. could prove valuable.

We can help you to turn the challenges into opportunities.

How can we help you? How can robotics help you?

Human Robotic technology has the potential to make an enormous impact on our society and industry. As is always the case with newly emerging and disruptive technologies, both enormous opportunities as big question marks remain open. Only an interdisciplinary approach can generate innovative solutions.

BruBotics strives for a closer collaboration with the non-academic world, to make sure that the know-how and technologies developed at the Vrije Unversiteit Brussel on this exciting topic are put to good use. In order to do so, a wide range of collaboration possibilities exist:

  • Dedicated research on your challenges

  • Joint Research & Development

  • Steering our research through user group participation

  • Application driven research

  • Technology licensing

  • Strategic and fundamental research

  • Services and trainings

It is also worth noting that BruBotics also has a clear goal to increase the number of spin-offs to market high potential technologies and make sure they are indeed put to good use.

We invite you to contact us, to discuss how we can help tackle your challenges. Together we can discuss the appropriate paths to take action and find the right financial support through national or international bodies such as the Flemish FWO or VLAIO, the Brussels INNOVIRIS programmes, the European Commission, …

Are you as a company interested to learn more about robotics and the answers human robotics can provide, without having a specific project in mind? We are always looking for companies to help guide our research in a direction that can lead to solid valorization towards society.
