Dr. Kiju Lee Received a New Grant

Dr. Kiju Lee has received a new grant from DARPA’s OFFensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics (OFFSET) program. The project, titled “α-SWAT: Adaptable Human-Swarm Teaming Via Visuo-Sensorimotor Interfaced Collaboration” and funded at $430K for the period of 5/7 - 11/6/2019, is led by Drs. Kiju Lee (PI), Michael Fu (Co-PI, EECS), Dustin Tyler (Co-PI, BMSE), and Wyatt Newman (Co-PI, EECS).

The project aims to enhance human -swarm collaborative interaction and advance multi-user interfaces to convey context-dependent visualization, intent-extraction, and haptic feedback. The team will develop and evaluate an adaptable human-swarm teaming (α-SWAT) system that integrates collaborative decision making algorithms with mixed really visualization and sensorimotor haptic interfaces.
