Assistive Furniture Robotics

Assistive Furniture Robotics at the Biorobotics Laboratory


For people with limited mobility, living in cluttered indoor environment is challenging. In order to ease the indoor life of people whose mobility is limited by either injury or aging issue,  we are currently exploring the concept of a suite of mobile furniture that, in addition to being functional objects, can be mobile assistive agents: get out of the way, follow a person, fetch daily stuff, and autonomously take on a commanded configuration in the room.
