Robotics and Mechatronics Center

The Robotics and Mechatronics Center is a cluster and German Aerospace Center's (DLR) competence center for research and development in the areas of robotics, mechatronics, and optical systems. Mechatronics is the closest integration of mechanics, electronics and information technology for the realization of “intelligent mechanisms” which interact with their environment. The core competence of RMC is the interdisciplinary (virtual) design, computer-aided optimization and simulation, as well as implementation of complex mechatronic systems and human-machine interfaces. In the robotics community, the center is considered as one of the world leading institutions.

The Robotics and Mechatronics Center is formed by three institutes with key research areas for inter-institutional cooperations.
