In terms of this matter, ITS proposed a center for Robotics studies, which is started with the development until the application that is expected to assist people.
To support the activities of Robotics laboratory, there are several supporting laboratories following:
-Intelligent Robot Laboratory.
-Robot Production Laboratory.
-Industrial Sensors Laboratory.
-Robot Control Laboratory.
Situated in the area of Robotics laboratory, there is also lies an Arena building as the place of center of studies on Information Communication Technology (ICT) and ITS Robotics, thus building supports Robotics laboratory activities and can also be used as lively events, such as:
- Robot Competition;
- Employee examination test;
- ESQ training;
