Our Research

Our research focuses on developing next generation immersive technologies
which leads us to the development of multipurpose robotic avatars.

Below are highlights of our ongoing research.

Smart Devices and IoT

Smart Infant Saver (SIS) Project

This project is pursuing under the core belief that as a collective, the world can achieve a future where the rate of sudden unexpected infant deaths can be greatly reduced and the uncertainty behind this syndrome vanished or minimized.

ISHA

Smart Home is the emerging technology in home automation, which is flexible, secure, and user friendly. Intelligent System for Home Automation (ISHA) enables to develop and implement smart home systems that can be remotely controlled from anywhere with gestures, voice commands, and smart devices. ISHA makes intelligent inferences based on user preferences, needs, and spatial, temporal and energy contexts.

Urban Search & Rescue Avatar

Telebot-2 for Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) is one of the latest developments from the ATR Lab. Development of this robot began at the end of March 2018, and was used during the World Robot Summit 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.

Telebot-2 USAR is humanoid telepresence “transformer” robot, equipped with a dual-strategy locomotion system that allows it to apply and differential and track-based locomotion.

Immersifly

Exploring the development of an affordable, immersive, flight simulator. Current development of the system includes integration with unmanned aerial vehicles and the use case of immersive drone racing. All hardware and software is being open-sourced along with design documents of the system.

Virtual Experiences

This project creates a virtual reality tour experience that helps users become familiar with a place and acquire high detailed information about said place before visiting. In addition to that, in the cases of something like a museum, or other places that are not easily accessible to people with disabilities, the tour provides a realistic experience comparable to actually visiting the place yourself, from the comfort of your home, with all the details of the environment shown appropriately in the VR experience. This project is also aimed at helping people who are intellectually disabled and those who have a hard time with social interactions to get familiar with a place like a college campus or a gym/recreational center before visiting. This will minimize their stress levels about going to a new place and also making it so that they don’t have to put themselves in stressful social situations. Our implementation currently uses a hotspot based touring system built in the Unity3D engine, with 360-degree pictures used to give the user the most immersive experience possible.
