GRAAL stands for Genoa Robotics and Automation Laboratory, and it is located at DIBRIS, Department of Computer Science, Bioengineering, Robotics, and System Engineering. Our department is part of the Polytechnic School of the University of Genova.
Our main research areas are marine robotics, cooperative control, embedded control systems and real time control architectures.
University of Genova is also part of the Interuniversity Center on Integrated Systems for the Marine Environment (ISME), and all the activities on marine robotics are carried out in close cooperation with other ISME laboratories.
Facilities for experimental robotics, hardware and real-time software design, and simulation offer a complete support for all the research areas.
Undergraduate students may join the laboratory for stages and for their Bachelor or Master Thesis work. This is a very important opportunity for students to participate to the ongoing research activities.
