Research activities of the HR2 laboratory can be divided into two broad categories, i.e. Modelling and analysis of the human physical interaction behavior, and Human in the loop robot planning and control. While the first line of research investigates for reliable and intuitive human-robot interfaces relying on or inspired by the human motor functionalities, the latter aims at the achievement of the enhanced human-robot-environment physical interaction performances.
