The new IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) Technical Committee (TC) on Human Movement Understanding was established in May 2014 to create a focal point for this emerging interdisciplinary research field and to facilitate the dissemination within both the robotics and neurophysiology research fields as well as sharing the contributions and the emerging applications with the broader scientific community. The main organizational structure of this TC consists of four cochairs, with 84 members from universities, clinical institutions, and industry. The priority areas for the TC include developing tools for characterizing changes in human motion due to disease, aging, or injury to facilitate applications in rehabilitation and neuroprosthetics and exoskeleton design. It also develops strategies for human motion reconstruction on engineered anthropomorphic systems, such as humanoid, modular manipulators, and simulated systems.
