About Research Group
The Human-Robot Interaction area is a research area of the Perceptual Robotics laboratory (PERCRO) of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, led by Prof. Antonio Frisoli.
The group of Human-Robot Interaction deals with developing theories, models and systems for new advanced human-machine interface systems, and in particular robotic systems that can physically cooperate (pHRI) with humans in a safe and intuitive manner and interact in Virtual Environments (haptic devices), within industrial and medical applications. The group has a consolidated experience in the areas of collaborative and wearable robotics, with particular reference to exoskeletons, haptic devices and wearable haptics, telerobotics and telepresence, theoretical kinematics and parallel manipulators, advanced control of electromechanical systems, robot assisted rehabilitation, FEM analysis, human-machine interfaces based on electro-biological signals (EEG, EMG), virtual reality immersive applications.
The group has a consolidated expertise in the area of collaborative robotics, with particular reference to robots for inspection in the context of railway, disinfection robot and telepresence robots, and wearable robotics, with particular reference to exoskeleton for the reduction of biomechanical load of workers and robotic assistive devices.
