Advances in new technologies have enabled individuals to do things that were once thought impossible. Yet, the success of new technologies isn’t solely about the “tech,” it’s about the people! In the Collaborative Haptics, Robotics and Mechatronics (CHROME) Lab at Saint Louis University Parks College, research is centered on how to promote effective human-machine interaction in numerous applications including education, medicine and consumer technologies. Here, engineers work collaboratively with professionals to create new technologies that make the world a better place. Saint Louis University Parks College mechanical engineer, Jenna Gorlewicz, Ph.D., talks about the human-technology frontier and how engineering can be, and is being, used to design the next generation of technologies that serve people of all abilities.
People and Technology is a Science in St. Louis Series partnership of the The Academy of Science – St. Louis and St. Louis County Libraries.
