What do we do?
The Waterloo Engineering Bionics lab develops technologies that will shape the future of the interaction of human and artificial systems. We conduct inter-disciplinary research across neuro-engineering, artificial intelligence, robotics, neuroscience, and medicine. We study mainly on physiological signals, such as electromyogram (EMG), electroencephalogram (EEG) and electrocardiogram (ECG), extracting useful information such as motion intentions, sensory processing, emotional states and cognitive processing. With these information, we develop systems that would allow synergistic interaction between human and artificial systems, computers, robotics, mobile devices, virtual reality etc. Our lab collaborates with hospitals, industry partners, and other research labs from all over the world to create novel ideas that are accessible to everyone.
