Robotics and haptics have the potential to enhance human performance and learning as well as provide unique insight into neuromotor function through sensing and quantification of human motion. At the same time, human behavior can inform the development of control strategies for complex tasks and human-robot interactions. Therefore, the Human-Centered Robotics Lab studies problems at the intersection of biology, robotics, and control, with applications to physical human-robot interaction, haptics, interface design, and robotic learning from demonstration
