Haptics and Telerobotics: Control systems and devices that allow human to feel and physically manipulate virtual or remote environment as if he/she is directly interacting with them.
Exoskeleton: Novel actuators and transmission systems to realize soft and lightweight wearable robots.
Autonomous Vehicle: perception, planning, navigation, and motion control technology for an unmanned grounded vehicle. We are also developing human supervised semi-autonomous teleoperation technology.
These researches have many potential applications, such as exploration and maintenance of hazardous remote environments, robot-assisted surgery, rehabilitation, human amplifier, firefighting robot, agricultural robot and etc.
The BioRobotics Lab is directed by Prof. Jee-Hwan Ryu and is of the School of Mechanical Engineering.
We are currently collaborating with many well-known universities and research institutes in the world, including DLR, Stanford, TUM, University of Bristol, Queen Mary University of London, ADD, KAERI, KETI, KITECH, SNU, DGIST and many others.
