We experience the world through and because of our bodies. Our perception has adapted to respond to relevant information, which we use to actively create our experience of the world. Perception is a process which combines motor (efferent) output with sensory (afferent) input. The motor and sensory elements are inseparable, hence, sensorimotor.
We conduct research on such sensorimotor loops and explore their role in Human Computer Interaction. Our research focuses on understanding these sensorimotor loops themselves, designing how they might be deployed in on-body systems, and creating the technology, materials, and infrastructure for implementing these.
Over the course of the next months, Courtney Reed (PostDoc), Nihar Sabnis (PhD Student), and Dennis Wittchen (Visiting Researcher) will be joining senSInt.
The Sensiromotor Interaction group joins the Max Planck Insitute for Informatics.
