Welcome to the CERC in Human-Centred Robotics and Machine Intelligence

The Human-Centred Robotics and Machine Intelligence research group has an ambitious multidisciplinary research program, integrating theory from many disciplines to understand, emulate and assist human motions. We do it by exploiting and developing cutting-edge technology such as humanoid and wearable robots, assistive devices and motion capture systems. There is a special focus on algorithm development for motion generation and control by combining model-based optimization with model-free machine learning approaches.
