Research at LASA develops means by which humans can teach robots to perform skills with the level of dexterity displayed by humans in similar tasks. Our robots move seamlessly with smooth motions. They adapt adequately and on-the-fly to the presence of obstacles and to sudden perturbations, hence mimicking humans. immediate response when facing unexpected and dangerous situations.

Current highlights

In this project, we studied and learned from novice and expert watchmakers. Studying them helps us understand and develop algorithms for dexterous and bimanual manipulation.

LASA teamed up with MIT press to publish a textbook presenting a wealth of machine learning techniques to make robot control more flexible and safer when interacting with humans.
