The Mechatronics and Industrial Robotics Laboratory (MIR) is located within DIISM with focus on the design and testing of automated machines and robots, prototype development, and advanced automated applications.
Research activities have produced several prototype robots, including biomorphic submarine robots and industrial applications of parallel robots. Studies are also being conducted on image processing systems, impedance controllers, and neural networks.
The ARTES 4.0 Competence Centre is a joint initiative of universities, research institutes, foundations and companies to promote innovation and technology development in SMEs. The Polytechnic University of Marche leads the Jesi Macro Node, where it has set up a laboratory to improve the competitiveness of companies through research and technology transfer.
The Machine Mechanics Group focuses on the development of solutions for human-centred manufacturing, using exoskeletons, collaborative robots and digital assistants to create an ergonomic work environment.
