Harmony, Interaction, and Versatile Exploration Lab
The HIVE Lab in the Department of Design, IIT Kanpur, provides necessary facility to build a product and enable interaction by human users. It focuses on Human Machine/Computer Interaction research in the domains of Automotive, Robotics, Music, AR/VR/XR, New Media and accessibility. The facility is equipped with SOTA sensors, actuators, trackers and simulators.
We work on Human Machine Interaction (HMI) or Human Computer Interaction (HCI). We design novel modalities for interacting with a machine/product. Our expertise in engineering have helped us in developing the functional prototypes.
We are working on Multimodal interaction and alert system for drivers in cars. We also work on driver distraction and cognitive load estimation of drivers.
We investigate different musical interfaces for artists to perform by being more expressive. We work on multi seonsory music and investigate music therapy for rehabilatation.
We work on different interaction techniques with robots (HRI). We investigate interaction for Social bots, office bots and autonmous navigation bots.
We work on interactive and immersive art installations through which we experience the impact of technology on humans and society.
