Collaborative Advanced Robotics and Intelligent Systems Laboratory
The Collaborative Advanced Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CARIS) Lab pursues world-class experimental research on human-robot interaction. It is based in the Institute for Computing Information and Cognitive Systems (ICICS) Building.
Their research facilities include the only Willow Garage PR2 in Canada, two Barrett WAM™ 7DOF robot arms and grippers, a unique robotic virtual reality environment to study human balance, and a room-sized integrated force and motion capture system, among other advanced sensing, control, and actuation equipment.
