Experts on human-computer interaction
As robots play ever increasing roles in many sectors of the economy, from manufacturing to healthcare, and in many aspects of everyday life, the need to understand how people and robots can coexist and collaborate productively and safely grows apace. WPI experts on human-robot interaction approach this need in a variety of research projects. These include work on the marriage of sophisticated algorithms, medical imaging, and the expertise of doctors in the guidance of surgical robots; the role of human experts in controlling nursing robots; and innovative was for people to control the actions of robots, including an electronic glove and a cap that monitors brain waves.
