The Institute of Robotics and Information Technology (IRTIC) of the University of Valencia was founded in 1991 by teaching staff from different departments of that university, most of them are now in the Department of Computer Science. IRTIC has currently 29 teaching staff, 16 graduates contracted for research and a variable number of research fellows which depends on the projects.

The activity of the Institute has changed and diversified greatly since its creation. Today it currently undertakes contracts for consultancy, service provision and collaboration in project design and implementation, both for companies and for public administration bodies. These research projects and contracts are focused on the fields of traffic and transport telematics; computer graphics and virtual reality; simulation of civil machinery; network services and computer security; control of robotic devices; and digital image processing.
