The purposes of the Human-Centric Design Research Lab are
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 performance assessment.
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.
