The group investigates human-centered challenges in interaction with modern interface technologies such as robotics or virtual reality with a special focus on health and learning applications.

Research 

Key research areas

The research group focuses on challenges regarding cognitive and physical abilities, social rules and practices, as well as environmental parameters that impact/determine human-machine interactions. The group also does applied research with regional and national stakeholders in the areas of health, robotics and smart learning

Focus 

The research group aims at investigating interactions with more and more complex machines based on human standards and behaviors. This includes questions about the role of emotions in interaction, cultural heuristics of behavior, as well as the question of how routines change when we introduce technology e.g. in health care settings, in schools, etc.

Results may be used for

Rehabilitiation and assisted living; optimization of work processes with humans in the loop; smart learning ecosystems; new interaction approaches for assistive robots.

Key projects 

DECOCHROM

A project that elevates printed graphics products to the age of interactivity, and empowers the creative industries with the tools and innovative advanced material sets to design and build aesthetically pleasing practical human interfaces to smart consumer goods and environments.

Build your own robot for independent living

An exploratory project with the overall goal of developing a concept of social robots as do-it-yourself aids that can be broadly used by different groups of people with cognitive and physical impairments.

Augmented cellular meat production

A project on safe and efficient human robot collaboration in industrial contexts, aided by AR technologies as a prerequisite to establishing and maintaining trust between operator and robot.
