About the Lab
The Human-Centered Robotics Lab aims at the development of novel human-centered robotic technologies to improve the quality of human life. The focus is on the system design and control to apply desired interventions with minimum external constraints on human. The goal is to study human adaptation to these haptic interventions to develop appropriate rehabilitation paradigms for people with neuro-musculoskeletal impairments. Key research direction include but are not limited to
- Design and control of mechanical systems
- Rehabilitation robotics
- Cable-driven robots
- Wearable robotics
