Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Colgate's principal research interest is human-robot interaction. He has worked extensively in the areas of haptic (touch) interface, remote manipulation, and advanced prosthetics.  He, along with collaborator Michael Peshkin, is the inventor of a broad class of collaborative robots known as “cobots.” In recent years, Professor Colgate’s research has focused on bringing haptic feedback to touch-based interfaces such as touch screens and touch pads.
