|Assistive Robots for Blind Travelers
As robotics technology evolves to a stage where co-robots, or robots that can work with humans, become a reality, we need to ensure that these co-robots are equally capable of interacting with humans with disabilities. This project addresses this challenge by exploring meaningful human-robot interaction (HRI) in the context of assistive robots for blind travelers.
This project adresses the problems of scene interpretation and path planning for mobile robot navigation in natural environment.
|Quality of Life Technology (QoLT)
QoLT is a unique partnership between Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh that brings together a cross-disciplinary team of technologists, clinicians, industry partners, end users, and other stakeholders to create revolutionary technologies that will improve and sustain the quality of life for all people.
Note: The QoLT Project has been superseded by the QoLT Center.
|RERC on Accessible Public Transportation
We are researching and developing methods to empower consumers and service providers in the design and evaluation of accessible transportation equipment, information services, and physical environments.
|Understanding and Modeling Trust in Human-Robot Interactions
This collaboration with the UMass Lowell Robotics Lab seeks to develop quantitative metrics to measure a user's trust in a robot as well as a model to estimate the user's level of trust in real time. Using this information, the robot will be able to adjust its interaction accordingly.
|The Robotics Institute is part of the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University.|
