Robotics, ENSTA Bretagne expertise with a global reach
Robotics, and more particularly marine and underwater robotics, is one of ENSTA Bretagne's flagship research topics. The Lab-STICC team works on topics of localization, coordination and control of systems in complex environments.
Several training courses (engineer course and MSc course) in mobile autonomous robotics are also offered on the campus. It has many applications (agricultural, maritime, transport, space exploration, etc.).
La robotique, et plus particulièrement la robotique marine et sous-marine, est un thème de recherche phare de l'ENSTA Bretagne. L'équipe, rattachée au Lab-STICC, se positionne sur les thématiques de la localisation, de la coordination, du contrôle des systèmes dans des environnements complexes.
Plusieurs formations (formation d'ingénieurs et master) en robotique autonome mobile sont également dispensées sur le campus. Les applications sont nombreuses (domaines agricole, maritime, transports, exploration spatiale...).
