The goal of the Human And Robot Partners (HARP) lab is to understand and develop autonomous, intelligent robots that help people live better. Our robots engage people through social and physical interactions, monitoring human behavior to understand and predict the types of help people need. Our lab’s expertise includes robotics, human-robot interaction, machine learning, computer vision, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and cognitive science. Application domains include assistive robot manipulators for people with motor impairments, robot tutors for education, and robot therapy assistants for people with cognitive or social disabilities.
Stop by our lab in NSH 4502 for a visit!
