Mechatronics and Robotics Research Lab

Optimizing Human Performance through Mechatronics

The Mechatronics and Robotics Research Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering. The lab is directed by Professor Frank Sup. We focus on the advancement of physical human-machine interaction. The core of the lab’s research is on human-centered mechatronic design in the development of collaborative and rehabilitative technologies. The research topics include wearable robotics such as intelligent prosthetics and exoskeletons, human motion simulation and prediction, and advanced design and control structures and methodologies. We strive to expand the boundaries in the research community, while providing a hands-on learning environment in leading-edge science.
