This paper is a survey on the principal research activities carried out by the Applied Robotics Group of the Istituto di Tecnologie Industriali e Automazione (ITIA) of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR). ITIA activities include applied research, research training, innovation services, coordination and management of national and international projects concerning products, process technologies and production systems. By working in cooperation with companies, universities and research centres, the Applied Robotics Group is involved, in accordance with the Institute philosophy, in the frame of national and international projects such as Progetto Finalizzato Robotica, Brite-Euram, Eureka-Famos, China-CEE Cooperation, Central European Initiative. The aim is to contribute to the development and optimization of new components and sub-systems for the Automated Factory, both in manufacturing and assembly. This paper presents research themes with objectives, results, technological framing, partners and future outlook.
