Welcome to the

HUman-MAchines INteraction Laboratory (HUMAIN-Lab)

Scope:
Machines, implemented either in hardware or in software, with whom a human interacts proliferate, furthermore their complexity increases; for instance, the aforementioned machines include devices for communication, computers, robots, costumer service software, and other. This lab pursues the study, analysis and design of both hardware and software that enables the seamless collaboration of humans with machines.
Objectives

Innovation

The operation of a machine in the “physical” environment is typically supported by arithmetic models. However, when a human is involved there might emerge non-numerical data…

Entrepreneurship

Our orientation is toward the conversion of our laboratory prototypes in commercial products.

Inventiveness

Our orientation is toward the development of machines with a capacity to interact with humans in various applications including education, precision farming, patrolling in the physical environment and other.
