The IGMR is a research institute of the RWTH Aachen University and in terms of robotic it is focused on the next generation robotic systems from the hardware and software perspective. This includes the entire process of designing an optimal robotic system from structural synthesis, over kinematics and dynamics modelling until a software solution running on real prototypes.
