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?
