The Assistive Technologies Laboratory is equipped with several robotic platforms, such as the PR2 (personal robot), KUKA (one-arm, small platform), and Zeno (humanoid robot). In addition, the lab is home to the new 3D eye-tracking device, smart wheelchair, and eyeDog.
Robotic platforms in the lab are used to develop an affordable assistive robotic technology that can help injured and disabled people. In addition, this lab specializes in the research and development of human-robotic interfaces.
Assistive robotics research in the lab is supported in part by government and industrial partners, including the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Science Foundation, QinetQ North America, and RE2, Inc.
