Our research seeks to advance the capabilities of real robots so that they can provide valued assistance to people in unstructured environments. We work with semi-autonomous mobile robots that physically manipulate the world. Healthcare serves as an important motivating application area for most of our research. Our projects involve research into human-robot interaction, autonomous mobile manipulation, machine perception, machine learning, and haptics.
