Robotics Research Laboratory


Measurement & Control Engineering Research Center,
Idaho State University
Pocatello, Idaho

Lab Director

Dr. Omid Heidari

Expertise and Research:

The areas of research in this lab include kinematics and motion planning, human limbs rehabilitation and synergy identification, augmented/virtual reality applications in robotics and kinematics, robot-human interaction and multi-fingered robotics hands. This lab has conducted several projects with industrial partners as well as other universities and research centers. We would also encourage and welcome researchers from other fields such as computer science, physical therapy, control and mechatronics to join us as the interdisciplinary nature of robotics creates opportunities for collaborations and opens door to interesting research topics.
