Human-machine interaction laboratory
The human-machine interaction laboratory houses a programmable suite of equipment.
This includes the highly sophisticated advanced service robot, Care-O-Bot 4, Siemens Simulation Software, SmartEye systems for eye tracking and gaze control, technologically advanced virtual reality HTC Vive headset and two mini ANKI Vector robots.
The headset is used for interaction with the Care-O-Bot and is capable of simulated VR environments. Research conducted in this laboratory includes human gesture understanding and human robot interaction with multimodal human computer interfaces, such as eye-gaze tracking. The laboratory is located in the School of Engineering.
