The Institute of Robotics and Cybernetics is a pedagogical, research, and development institute of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (Slovak University of Technology) in Bratislava.
As part of its pedagogical activities, the Institute primarily provides the study program Robotics and Cybernetics in all three levels of higher education (bachelor's, master‘s and doctoral studies).
Research and teaching is carried out in laboratories, which are also built from the resources of the Institute but especially from the resources of grant tasks, tasks solved for industry and sponsorships of companies. Several parts of HW and SW laboratory equipment are the result of scientific research activities of staff, doctoral students and students.
There is also significant assistance in equipping laboratories with cooperating institutions that have lent the most modern equipment for a certain period of time to specific laboratories of the Institute. Such cooperation is a great benefit for the professional growth of employees who gain experience working on current top professional equipment, it is also beneficial for students who have the opportunity to work on equipment used in practice. The benefits for the institutions are in two areas. The current scientific and technical tasks of practice are solved at their equipment, and it is no less important that graduates who have practical experience with working on that equipment will come to practice after graduation.
The publishing activities of the Institute for individual periods can be found here:
