웨어러블 로봇은 사람과 상호작용하는 로봇 시스템을 일컬으며,
AWEAR Lab에서는 사람과 로봇 사이에 나타나는 인체공학적 상호작용에 기반하여
인체 친화적 로봇 hardware 시스템 및 AI 응용 로봇 제어 software를 개발하고자 노력하고 있습니다.
특히, AWEAR Lab은 사람의 근육을 모사한 케이블 기반 로봇 구동 매커니즘을 개발함으로 보다 가볍고
자연스러운 방식으로 인체와 유사한 로봇 움직임을 구현하기 위해 노력하고 있습니다.
Welcome to the AI-based WEArable Robotics (AWEAR) laboratory in Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST). Our mission is to develop robotic systems that can assist and support human with robotic technology. Our lab is designing, fabricating, and testing innovative robotic devices for various body parts to enhance human performance. We are also focusing on AI-based robot controllers by building systematic biomechanical data that responds to human-robot interaction, as we believe that smart robot control technology will be key for the future of wearable robots.
AWEAR Lab has relocated to Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST)!
