Welcome to the AI Robolab Group!

AI RoboLab is part of the Computer Science and Communications (CsC) unit in the University of Luxembourg. We are a group of researchers (faculty and students) interested in creating autonomous behaviours for social and assistive robots.

The Team


The group was founded in 2009  to promote inclusive social robotics in fields like psychotherapy, physiotherapy and education.  Since then, the group has been working in the research and development of different solutions for improving human quality life. AI Robolab fosters the use of AI and social robots in schools and high schools as a tool beyond traditional educational methods to create more inclusive classrooms. 

Since its creation, AI Robolab took part of Luxembourgish national events like Researchers' days, Science days or Students days promoted by FNR and other Luxembourgish public entities in order to show current advances to all learners visiting our stands.

One of the most successful milestones in AI Robolab is LuxAI spin-off company. The startup uses the latest advancements in Artificial Intelligence and robot-therapy in building the social robot QT to assist people.



AI Robolab - Job offer

The AI RoboLab, headed by Prof. Leon van der Torre, is seeking an outstanding postdoc to strengthen its research team in the area of AI-based robotics contributing to our vision of developing and deploying autonomous robots able to meaningfully interact with and assist humans. The application areas of interest include social robotics and robotics for healthcare and education.
The postdoc is expected to pursue state of the art research activities in social robotics, write research proposals, assist in supervision, teaching and public dissemination activities of AI-Robolab and collaborate with local spin-offs.

QT Field Test Report: Case Study - EIPA, Luxembourg

During a field test research conducted by the AIrobolab and the SNT department of the University of Luxembourg multiple autism centers in Luxembourg, France, Germany and Belgium tested QTrobot. The aim of the field test research was to analyze the ease of use and ease of programming of the QTrobot by non-IT specialist therapists in the autism centers as well as the usefulness of the robot in improving the quality of the autism training sessions.

Here you can find a case study reporting the observation of professionals using QTrobot for speech therapy in institute pour les enfant autiste et psychotique Luxembourg (EIPA) and Centre de compétences pour enfants et jeunes présentant un trouble du spectre de l’autisme (CTSA)
