Biomechanics Laboratory (BML)

Biomechanics Laboratory is a facility equipped for measurement (3D human body kinematics, ground reaction, 8 channel surface EMG) and analysis of human movement, posture and locomotion. It is applicable in the fields of sports, kinesiology, medical rehabilitation, ergonomics, and the like. The facility is used primarily as a site for research and university-level teaching in biomechanics and bioengineering of human locomotion, but also to develop and provide clinical-type diagnostics methods, a core one being gait analysis.

Human-oriented Technologies Laboratory (HOTLab)

In our research we explore and develop technological means to analyse and simulate people and their behavior, with a strong interest in applications of such technologies. We blend techniques from various fields, including computer graphics, computer vision, virtual & augmented reality, machine learning and speech technologies, to achieve goals such as fully automatic tracking of facial features in video, automatic animation of talking virtual characters from speech or text input and embodied conversational agents using multimodal behavior to communicate with users. Potential applications of such technologies include marketing and communications, games and entertainment, aid for the disabled, military training, automotive and industrial safety, identity verification and others.
