Arts et Métiers is a higher education engineering school in France. The school trained 85,000 engineers since its foundation in 1780 by the Duke of La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt, and it remains a high-status and selective French Grande Ecole. It includes 8 Education and Research Campus and 3 Institutes across France. Arts et Métiers is a "Public Scientific, Cultural and Professional Institution" (EPSCP) under the authority of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. With 15 research laboratories and 1 PhD program, Arts et Métiers develops teaching and research activities in five strategic fields:
- Future of manufacturing
- Health Tech
At Arts et Métiers, the shared goals of the research and industry stakeholders bring them together to develop projects and skills to promote the emergence of new ideas in response to rapid technological changes. This approach enables the school to maintain the highest levels of expertise. Furthermore Arts et Métiers has been involved in several European Projects, as a partner and as a coordinator.
The Lille campus researchers are involved in this project. They are members of the LSIS-CNRS laboratory, UMR CNRS n°7296. They develop research activities in the fields of robotics, the design of new innovative sensors, and high precision mechanical engineering. The LSIS-CNRS laboratory of the Arts et Métiers Lille Campus has extensive experience concerning robotic accuracy. Its research and development work spans vibration control, control engineering, high precision mechanical design and engineering, sensor development, computer aided geometric design with robotic applications. The laboratory starts with industrial partners involved in this project, new robotic applications in safe physical robot-human interaction in shared workspaces. The LSIS CNRS team of the Lille Campus is looking forward to the transfer of current and new innovations in the fields of robotics and safety systems from the laboratory to industrial partners.
