Automation, robotics and machine vision are rapidly developing areas. Robots operating safely in shared working areas with humans represents the newest development in the field. They can lighten the workload within e.g. assembly lines, health care services and in homes. 

Complementing its traditional expertise in automation and machine vision, JAMK also increases education and RDI activity within robotics. The aim is to improve the region’s competitiveness in service activities and manufacturing with applications in robotics.
