Welcome to the Human-inspired Robotics (HiRo) Lab!

We design Teleoperation Interface and Robot Autonomy compatible with the Perception-Action Coupling of human motor control. Our on-going projects include:

  • Shared Autonomous Nursing Robots
  • Perception-Vision Coupling in Active Telepresence
  • Ergonomic Teleoperation Interface and Robot Autonomy

We are located on Room 224 at 85 Prescott, a short 10-minute walk from WPI main campus area. Feel free to visit!
