	Interfaces based on Human Physiological Signals
		- Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI)
		- Myoelectric interfaces
	Human Biometric analysis
		- Human Emotion Recognition
		- Human Movement Tracking
		- Human Movement Classification
	Human-Robot Interaction
		- Exoskeletons and
		- Prostheses
		- Haptics
	Virtual and Augmented Reality

- Cognitive and motor rehabilitation
- Human power augmentation
- Prostheses
- Ambient Assisted Living and surgery
