Shaping technology to fit humans’ needs is central to our motivation in understanding, designing and creating new ways for Human-Computer Interaction. We are especially interested in future collaborative work environments and finding new ways for technology to seamlessly blend with existing work practices. This specifically includes Human-Robot Collaboration scenarios, where we aim to design novel concepts for interaction and cooperation between humans and semi-autonomous robots.
Our Research Projects
In the research project MobILe - Human-Robot Interaction for a Self-determined Life, supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the conception as well as the opportunities and limitations of an assistance system for tetraplegics are explored by using a room-installed robotic arm for food consumption.
