Short Abstract:
One of the most revolutionary and challenging features of the next generation of robots will be physical human-robot interaction (pHRI). pHRI robots will be designed to coexist and cooperate with humans in applications such as assisted industrial manipulation, collaborative assembly, domestic work, teleoperation, rehabilitation or medical applications. Clearly, such robots must fulfill different requirements from those typically met in conventional industrial applications. This course aims at introducing the underlying concepts and necessary tools for the realization of an effective human-robot interaction.

Course Contents in brief:

  • Versatility and stability in human motor behavior
    • Human musculoskeletal structure
    • Dynamic modeling of the contact stability in humans
    • Human intention estimation: real-time applications
  • Impedance and force control
  • Human-in-the-loop control of adaptive robots
    • Teleimpedance
    • Rehabilitation robotics
    • Prosthetics: softness by control.
  • Robot learning for physical human-robot interaction
    • Introduction to robot learning
    • Learning from demonstration – A probabilistic approach
    • Robot learning for human-robot collaboration
