Cognition and Robotics lab
The Cognition and Robotics lab has a wide range of small- and large- scale equipment for research in robotics and neural engineering. Robotics and Human-Robot Interaction is concerned with the design and evaluation of robotic systems and methods for designing, implementing and evaluating the interaction between robots and human beings. We explore and demonstrate convergences and synergies among these themes. We are also interested in convergences and crossovers between biology and robotics/AI, as a strategic direction.
