Organization profile

Currently, the development of automatic systems is reconfiguring industrial and social processes. Thus, advances in artificial intelligence such as those developed by companies such as Google or IBM are changing the way companies are administered and managed, educate or produce new products. On the other hand, the development of service robotics and computer systems and their interaction with people is strongly contributing to improving people's quality of life and transforming urban environments.

In order to respond to these new scientific-technological challenges, the Interaction, Robotics and Automation (GIIRA) research group has been set up, where we aspire to develop scientific-technological tools with which to cover the fields of: human-interaction machine, robotics and artificial intelligence.

Research lines:

Human-machine interaction
Control Engineering and Automation Technologies
Support Robotics and Industry

Coordinator:

Christian Raul Salamea Palacios (csalamea@ups.edu.ec)

UN Sustainable Development Goals
