Human work and life support are areas that provide practical applications for robotics and mechatronics technology. There is great expectation from the industry in these fields, and research and development efforts have been actively undertaken with great social impact. To support human work and life accurately, we must understand the complicated sensory, nervous, and motor control systems that enable design and development of appropriate assistive devices.
Therefore, in this mini special issue, we focus on robotics and mechatronics for human sensing, modeling, and augmentation.
The editor hopes that this special issue will attract researchers’ interest and contribute to further developments in this field.
