Abstract: The Stanford Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine Lab, directed by Prof. Allison Okamura, designs and studies haptic systems using both analytical and experimental approaches. Haptics, the sense of touch, is crucial for human exploration and manipulation of the world. In medicine and rehabilitation, haptic interaction is often necessary for reasons of performance, safety, and user acceptance. Our research is devoted to developing the principles and tools needed to realize advanced robotic and human-machine systems capable of haptic interaction. We are particularly interested in teleoperation, virtual environments, and robotic manipulation. This research has applications in many areas, including robot-assisted surgery, simulation and training, rehabilitation, exploration of hazardous or remote environments, enabling technologies, manufacturing, design, mobile computing, and education. A major theme of our work is biomedical systems.
