(Systems and control engineering.

Description of activity:

Robots that closely and physically interact and collaborate with humans have enormous potential
to boost economic productivity, product diversity and personalization, to advance health and
wellbeing for independent living, and to manage physical rehabilitation. These services, however,
rely on developing new methods for human safety - specifically when looking at the continuous
physical coupling of human and robot(s), either direct or through an object. Thus, new control
methods to enhance human safety should be developed that go beyond the current paradigm of
impact-related injury reduction and intrinsically safe robots and enable robotic systems to operate
safely in close and continuous physical interaction with humans.
