Welcome to the OSU Robotics and Human Control Systems Lab, which is part of the OSU Robotics group

Our group's research interests lie at the intersection of robotics and computational neuroscience and biomechanics.  We pioneer the unique idea of “simultaneous bio-inspiration and robo-inspiration”.  Specifically, we simultaneously draws inspiration from the human control system to advance robotic systems and use robotic systems to develop a stronger understanding of the human body and improve quality of life.

Application areas include robotic grasping and manipulation, rehabilitation, mobile robotics, and human-robot interaction.

The lab is directed by Prof. Ravi Balasubramanian.
