The Behavior, Robotics, and Sensing Group is focused on influencing human behavior using robotics and virtual reality, and quantifying changes in behavior using sensing and machine learning approaches. We leverage principles of motor learning and control to develop novel techniques for rehabilitation and human monitoring.

We are particularly interested in applying these techniques to individuals living with motor and neurological deficits.

By treating the human as a dynamical system, we can provide system inputs using robotic and VR technologies, while measuring the effects of those inputs using wearable sensors and learning algorithms. This approach facilitates novel data driven, objective rehabilitation strategies.
