Robotics by JAMK

In the Heart of Robotics


Automation and robotics are one of Jamk's six areas of expertise. The industrial robotics laboratories located on JAMK main campus cover many robotics-related environments and technologies.

By combining the multidisciplinary skills in automation and robotics, Jamk provides testing and piloting services as well as simulation environments for companies and organizations.

Robotics has been established to serve companies and organizations that could utilize robotics in their operations. The aim of the center is to raise awareness of the possibilities of robotics and to lower the threshold for the  commissioning of robotics. We provide robotics testing and piloting services, training and RDI activities in cooperation with companies.

Automation of companies operations and services, as well as robotisation, aim to increase companies productivity. The introduction of robotics has a direct impact on organizational structure, work processes and competence, but also on employee motivation, well-being at work and workplace culture.

The latest development in robotics are represented by collaborative robots and mobile robots operating in the same space as humans. They can be used to reduce the workload on production lines, in nursing work and in homes for example. In business, we are focusing on solutions to accelerate decision-making through software robotics and automation.

Robotics research and development

JAMK conducts strong RDI activities in close cooperation with companies. Multidisciplinary research and development of robotics is one of our strengths.

Here are a few examples of our project activities.
