Mechatronics and Human-Connected Robotics

Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to experience the world from someone else’s shoes? Thanks to the revolutionary research on robotics taking place in collaboration with the Human Fusions Institute, that concept is becoming a reality. 

Roboticist Veronica J. Santos, PhD, and her team at the UCLA Biomechatronics Lab are leveraging their expertise in artificial tactile sensing, tactile perception, and grasp and manipulation with human, prosthetic and robotic hands to directly connect the human experience to that of an avatar, leaving the human and robotic systems symbiotically linked.
