Areas of Research
This type of robot is designed for interacting with humans and with the environment we evolve in. However, before humanoid robots can find a place in our everyday life, new approaches for their modeling and control need to be developed.
Touch is a powerful means of communication between individuals. How can we provide robots with the ability to communicate with human operators through physical contact?
For scenarios where a human operator and a robot share a task in which they come into direct contact with each other, we are interesting in generating behaviours of the robot that are intuitive for the operator, while taking into account questions of safety and comfort.
