Robots are more and more among humans in different scenarios and contexts, such as industries, houses, restaurants, and construction sites. Either working directly with humans as direct contact handlers or assembling different parts, robots often need to perform tasks that require physical interaction with objects, other robots or people.
And as the
To properly control physical interaction is critical in both manipulation and collaborative tasks in unstructured environments where contact forces exist. However, most
This half-day workshop will bring together key researchers of academia and industry to discuss the potential, the implementation, and limitations of physical robot interaction applications and controllers.
