Haptics & Robotics Lab

Haptic technology is used to generate the sense of touch. It allows us to touch and manipulate objects either within a virtual environment or in a real world through teleoperated systems, such as for surgical robots. Research on the haptic technology brought it into computer games, mobile phones, surgical simulators, medical robotics etc. Our lab contributes to this technology by developing smart mechatronic and robotic systems for medicine and human-machine interaction.
