LSA is devoted mainly to environmental, humanitarian, educational, and industrial applications for the benefit of mankind. The laboratory combines researchers from different areas (embedded systems, computer vision, AI) to design innovative solutions, bridging the existing robotics research gap between hardware and software. The laboratory has a complete set of programmable robotics resources including different mobile platforms (boats, rotatory wings UAV, land robots), arms, sensors (laser rangers, cameras, IMU, etc), embedded computers, 3D printer, etc.

LSA is part of the Machine Intelligence and Robotics (MIR) research nucleus.
