Research areas

Our laboratory researches theories and technologies related to the control and development of advanced mechatronics systems. In particular, we focus on robot control and haptics, including the guidance control of a robotic swarm composed of multiple robots and the development of systems to enhance human haptic perception or support motor learning (skill transfer). We are interested in various objectives, from artificial objects like machines to non-artificial objects like humans.

Main facilities
