The purposes of the Human-Centric Design Research Lab are
(1) to advance the understanding of human
movement capabilities by means of modeling, simulation and experimentation,
and develop computer software package that facilitates human-centric design,
biomechanics analysis, ergonomics assessment, injury prediction, traffic
safety system including digital human visibility prediction and human
(5) to promote human lives by developing
novel medical devices such as hand/foot prosthesis, and other devices.
(7) to prevent falls for patients/the elderly in hospitals.
(8) to develop new simulation models for vehicle dynamics and autonomous vehicles.
Our research has been funded by multiple sponsors including the US Army, DOE, NSF, NIST, NPSF, NIOSH, Honda R&D North Americas, Caterpillar, and USCAR.
