Laboratory of Intelligent Systems
Our fields of activity span:
We take inspiration from nature for the design, learning and control of agile drones that can fly in cluttered environments and in swarms.
We investigate and develop novel soft wearable robots for natural interactions between humans and robots.
We investigate smart materials, mechanical design, learning and control of soft robots that capture the resilience and adaptability of living organisms.

Two LIS articles highlighted during ICRA 2021
In 2021, two papers from Laboratory of Intelligent Systems have been highlighted during the annual IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2021) awards event.
Helping drone swarms avoid obstacles without hitting each other
Engineers at EPFL have developed a predictive control model that allows swarms of drones to fly in cluttered environments quickly and safely. It works by enabling individual drones to predict their own behavior and that of their neighbors in the swarm.
