The University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing is the largest technical faculty and leading educational and R&D institution in the fields of electrical engineering, information and communication technology and computing in the Republic of Croatia. In the last 20 years the LARICS - Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems (http://larics.rasip.fer.hr) research group has been involved in research on integrated robotics and process control. LARICS researchers (4 professors, 2 post-docs and 11 PhD students) have mainly participated in research devoted to the unmanned aerial systems, intelligent control systems, service robotics, control of multi-agent systems, robot formations, planning, scheduling and decision making in autonomous systems and application of new technologies in industrial control systems. LARICS is equipped with state of the art electronics design software, aerial robotics systems, humanoid and bio-inspired robots, ground mobile platforms, sets of various sensors, actuators and signal processing boards. Particular emphasis has been given to collaboration with industry, which resulted in many successful implementations of novel control algorithms and human-machine-interfaces in industrial plants. LARICS researchers were involved in 4 EU FP7 projects (ACROSS, EC-SAFEMOBIL, EuRoC and ASSISI_bf), currently participate in 6 H2020 projects (subCULTron, HORSE-Endorse, ACROSS-CoE, Crobohub, ENOCRE and RoboCom++) and coordinate H2020 AeroTwin project and NATO SpS project MORUS. They participate in several national projects financed by the government and industrial partners, and 3 collaborative projects with scientists from USA and PR China.
