Goal and motivation for robotics at IMS Lab

Robots are developed for the improvement of quality of our lives. Human-Robot Collaboration encompasses developing usable robots that make our everyday lives easier. Collaborative robots share their autonomy with human partners, thus improving the efficiency and quality of work in areas such as flexible manufacturing, logistics, domestic assistance, healthcare, and teleoperation in hazardous environments. We have extensive experience in research and technology of every aspect of robotics: designing electronics, mechanical engineering, software development, system integration, device building, education and training.


  • TeMoto, a highly intuitive telerobotics platform,
  • omnidirectional robotont platform for education and research in ROS,
  • Fits.me shape-changing mannequin,
  • Self-deployable Habitat for Extreme Environments (SHEE),
  • Massive open online course (MOOC) about robotics in Estonia (https://sisu.ut.ee/robot).


Tools we use

  • ROS
  • LabVIEW,
  • C++


Our inventory includes but is not limited to:


  • Hardware integration
  • Software engineering
  • Electronics design
  • Full system development
  • ROS and engineering trainings
