Cybertronica Research is a research center of advanced robotics and environmental science. It is a high-tech spin-off SME from the University of Stuttgart. After successful European projects such as I-SWARM, GOLEM, ANGELS, CoCoRo, EvoBody SYMBRION, REPLICATOR, we accumulated a number of innovations with a high application potential. Since the research center was grounded by scientists, we target an open research approach; however our aim is to convert fundamental research into innovative business concepts and real-world applications. Cybertronica Research specialises in the area of cognitive robotics, intelligent mechatronics, environmental sensing and bio-technological systems. The company targets a close-loop development and design cycle, where all necessary scientific knowledge as well as mechanical, electronic and embedded programming skills and equipment are concentrated in one area and closely integrated with each other. This allows a rapid prototyping of complex electronic, micro-mechanical, mechatronic and bio-hybrid systems.
Researchers of CYBERTRONICA developed ground and underwater autonomous robot systems, provided a critical infrastructure for cooperative applications, manufactured small-series solutions for power management, sensors and communication, microprocessor systems. Company performs research and technological development towards own solutions related to remote sensing approaches, environmental monitoring in agricultural and livestock areas. Lately new advanced photonic technologies, and corresponding LED devices, are developed for application in horticulture production.
Company maintains a close relationship with universities and research organizations. Since we are able to make very fast development with real prototypes, this enables a fast progress in research projects. Thus, one of the important fields of activities is carried out within research projects and is focused on self-developmental, reconfigurable, swarm and networked systems, different sensing (i.e. underwater) systems as well as on self-organised approaches for cooperation. Proposed scientific and technological solutions, presented in thematic conferences were awarded as best papers. The company used its own infrastructure for a rapid implementation of scientific concepts in hardware and software, ending up in a development of experimental prototypes.
The company consists of research staff, PhD students, project managers, software developers and has two major departments: research and production.
This gives Cybertronica a broad range of in-house scientific and technological expertise and skills.
