The Human-Machine Teaming laboratory was established in September 2003 by Dr. Julie A. Adams, Ph.D.. The purpose of the laboratory is to investigate and advance issues in Complex Man-Machine Systems development and interaction. The laboratory research focuses on developing interaction for multiple robotic systems and developing distributed artificially intelligent algorithms to support human-robotic interaction.
