- Human-robot interfaces and controls using biological signals such as EMG and EEG
- Mobility algorithms, planning and navigation for underwater, surface, and aerial robotic platforms
- Robot intelligence, behavior control, robot learning, cognition and decision making, including distributed reasoning and optimal control for cooperative robots
Interest in Biological Interfaces
In the area of biological interfaces they have Christopher Assad and Michael Wolf with an interest in the area. Also, one of their key projects is entitled Bioelectric Sensor Arrays for Reliable Prosthetic Interface sponsored by DARPA. It is mostly about EMG, but the objectives are similar to those of BCI.
They have a number of robotic arenas and a very sophisticated simulator called DARTS.
