Our innovation program is as robust as our research program. With support from the EMBRAPII program, we have attracted several partners for the development of technological projects using optics as the main element, directly or indirectly. There are about 36 Embrapii-type projects, with 16 already fully delivered and another 26 in the process of being carried out or in the process of being completed. We help to form companies, launch products, and all using scientific background as the main element. In addition to projects in partnerships with companies, we develop our own projects. In this case, we take advantage of the opportunities generated by our research and which have great potential to become part of innovation projects. In our laboratory, several PIPE FAPESP projects receive support and also several students form companies and seek support from infrastructure.

Mobile Robotics

The ART group (Aerial Robots Team) develops research focused on multi-rotor aerial robots. The main activities are related to new aerial robot designs, aerodynamic studies for better flight autonomy, stabilization algorithms and guidance and navigation methodologies. The ART group develops using flight simulators such as Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) with Software-In-The-Loop methodology [...]


Eletronic Workshop

The center is involved in the development of cutting-edge experiments in several fields related to optics. In all these fields, the need for solid instrumentation support is imperative. LIEPO (Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory) supports all research laboratories, integrating current technologies and, if necessary, developing their own devices, as often the applications [...]


Technological Support Laboratory

In order to promote strong innovation activity and interaction with companies, we created a laboratory composed of engineers fully dedicated to innovative projects. The activity of LAT - Technological Support Laboratory  is mainly focused on the development of devices and testing principles for the use of optics in life sciences. The field of biophotonics in [...]


Robotic Rehabilitation

The Mechatronics Group's goal is to develop friendly and useful ways for machines to interact with their users and also with the external environment. Within this context, the group develops research in the field of robot-aided rehabilitation, where the proximity of machines with their medical users, therapists and patients represents a striking feature. In the specific case of patients, these users [...]
