HUman behavioral Modeling for enhancing learning by Optimizing hUman-Robot interaction

Project description

Cognitive Systems, Interaction, Robotics Investigating and developing efficient robot strategies to facilitate the acquisition of motor skills The HUMOUR project will investigate and develop efficient robot strategies to facilitate the acquisition of motor skills. It will address both the (human) trainee and the (robot) trainer sides, by combining behavioural studies on motor learning and its neural correlates with design, implementation, and validation of robot agents that behave as optimal trainers, which efficiently exploit structure and plasticity of the human sensorimotor systems. Robot trainers will be validated in the context of motor skill learning and robot-assisted rehabilitation. This will benefit large groups of individuals, by helping professionals, e.g. surgeons, to acquire delicate motor skills; by providing older persons greater access to activities like fitness, sports, and arts, thus ultimately improving their quality of life.
