Welcome to the Interactive Robotics Group!

We are a research lab at MIT developing innovative methods for enabling fluid human-robot collaboration.  Our vision is to harness relative strengths of humans and robots to accomplish what neither can do alone.  We focus on developing robots that work in teams with people in high-intensity and safety-critical applications, including industrial manufacturing, disaster response, and space exploration. 

Our lab is in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is affiliated with the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
