Welcome to Human-Machine-Interface Laboratory


Tsinghua University
Department of Electronic Engineering


Human-Machine-Interface Laboratory is the research center in Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University founded in 2016, currently directed by Dr. Milin Zhang.

A Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) is a system designed to generate an artificial communication pathway between the human being and the external hardware. Our research lab seeks to explore the technology of the design of implantable and/or wearable HMI systems for neuroscience research as well as for clinical practices. The intellectual merit of our work lies in

1. To bridge the gap between life science and silicon electronics by designing portable and/or implantable devices and interface circuits for various applications, including, but is not limited to, bio/healthcare area, robotics, computer vision and artificial intelligence.

2. To explore new sensing technologies by introducing nano- to macro-structured materials into standard CMOS technology to realize wearable and/or implantable sensory system.

3. To improve the power consumption and robustness of integrated sensory circuits and systems as well as wireless sensor networks, by investigating trade-offs in the circuit design. Introduce compressive and/or feature extractive sensory information acquisition methodologies into standard CMOS circuit and system to improve the efficiency.

The research outcome will create a significant opportunity to medical researchers, enabling various neural experiments performed on freely behaving animals and/or human objects. In addition, the research outcome will greatly increase the impact of China to international brain research.
