Research interest

Physical Safety in Human-Robot Collaboration

Generating a holistic model of injury in collision and clamping situations:

  • Development of test devices
  • Testing and medical evaluation
  • Safety Curves for diffrent body parts and Point of Intersts

Cognitive Safety in Human-Robot Collaboration

Understanding and modelling the perception of safety in Robotics:

  • Long-term-studies on perceived safe distances and velocities
  • Difference of perception based on age, background and experience with robots
  • Estabilshing control strategies for perceived safety in social robotics

(System) architecture of Safe collaborations

What does it take to generate safe Human-Robot Collaboration?

  • Reliable sensing methods and sensor fusion for Safety applications (Human detection)
  • Control strategies for safe, perceived safe and still productive Human-Robot Collaboration
  • Mechanical Design of Robots and End-Effectors

Productivity and Safety in Human-Robot Collaboration

Generating solutions for safe and efficient Human-Robot Collaboration for applicability in industrial scenarios:

  • Evaluation methods for productivity and safety in Collaborations
  • Definition of workspaces and constriants for robots motion
  • Avoiding down-times through different control strategies
