ETH Zurich’s mission is to compete as one of the top universities internationally and break into new, pioneering fields. A university with national roots and an international orientation, it fulfils this mission on behalf of Switzerland.

Collaboration between ETH Zurich’s Autonomous Systems Lab (ASL) and Inspection Robotics takes place primarily at the level of research and development. The main goal is to develop intelligent, autonomous robotic and mechatronic systems. In concrete terms these are inspection robots, walking robots and micro robots, as well as unmanned aircrafts such as solar aircrafts and micro helicopters. Other areas covered include navigation and mapping, and product design methodologies and innovation.
