Wearable Engineering Assistive robotics

Wearable Engineering and Assistive Robotics (WEAR) laboratory’s mission is to research wearable technologies to assist, enable and augment human performance and to develop assistive robots for real world applications. This 1400 -square-foot laboratory is located in Research 1 building (Room 313) facilitating research and development of innovative technologies, testing and evaluation of the developed technologies, and interdisciplinary collaborations.

RESEARCH​

The unique capabilities of the lab include the state-of-the-art equipment for high fidelity human movement biomechanics measurement (force-plate instrumented treadmill, motion capture camera system, electromyography, inertial measurement units, cardiopulmonary measurement mask) as well as robotic platforms, sensors and embedded systems to implement and validate different design and control approaches while researching their impact on human performance, human-robot interactions and user acceptance.
