The CRAI Lab, within the College of Aeronautics and Engineering, Kent State University, aims to conduct a cutting-edge cognitive robotics research -– designing the “Mind” for robotic and AI systems for seamless cooperation with humans. Robot mind is cognitive models based on AI algorithms and theory in cognitive science, psychology and neuroscience. We envision that with cognitive models, robots have self-awareness and self-behavior diagnosis, understand human attention and environmental risk, and build a trustworthy relation with humans and other robotic systems. The applications include daily assistive robots, UAV teaming and deployment, medical AI systems, and intelligent manufacturing. Research directions in CRAI include i). Trustworthy Humans-Robots Mixed Teaming, ii). Multi-Robot/UAV Adaptability, iii). Safe/Secured AI Systems, iv). Robot Behavior Transparency.
