La recerca s'articula en dues línies amb els objectius que es detallen a continuació.

Percepció i Manipulació:
1. Enllaçar percepció i acció utilitzant mètodes geomètrics i estadístics per al modelatge de l'entorn i del propi robot, per a la planificació de tasques i moviments, i per a l'aprenentatge.
2. Aprofundir en l'aprenentatge per reforçament i en l'aprenentatge per demostració, en particular el "mestratge", com a base per a la interacció entre robots, humans i l'entorn.

Cinemàtica i Disseny de Robots:
3. Trobar mètodes generals i complets per a l'anàlisi i la planificació de moviments lliures de col·lisió de mecanismes.
4. Desenvolupar noves estructures mecàniques, preferentment robots paral·lels i robots basats en estructures "tensegrity".
5. Incrementar i millorar l'expertesa del grup en l'àrea del disseny mecànic

Research is organized in two lines with the following goals.

Perception and Manipulation:
1. Linking perception and action using geometric and statistic methods for modelling the environment and the robot, for task and motion planning, and for learning.
2. Deepening on reinforcement learning and in learning by demonstration, in particular "coaching", as a basis for the interaction of robots, humans and the environtment.

Kinematics and Robot Design:
3. Finding general and complete methods for the analysis of mechanisms and for planning collision-free motions.
4. Developing new mechanical structures, especially parallel robots and robots based on tensegrity structures.
5. Increasing and enhancing the expertise of the group in the area of mechanical design.
