Collaborative Robots Research Center


General Introduction

The role of the Center is to commercialize differentiated technology to make strategic regional industries competitive in the global market by pursuing excellence through the differentiation of collaborative robots and by securing leading technologies. The ultimate goal is to become a 'T-Focus (Technology-Focus)' flagship research center that realizes a welfare state where humans and robots coexist.


To concentrate on R&D that aligns with DGIST's core fields and that improves the competitiveness of strategic regional industries to establish a DGIST robot brand. In other words, to develop intelligent components, modules, and service technology that can be common differentiated solutions by selecting the fields of smart health, active rehabilitation, and smart factory as priority areas for both key R&D and technology commercialization.

To play a key role in resolving national and global issues through convergence research and differentiated application research of core robot technology and intelligent sensor technology.
