Bodily Human Robot Interaction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


This workshop is dedicated to discuss and explore the specific interdisciplinary aspects of Bodily human robot interaction, and establish a common ground for this area as a recognized and continued research topic. Bodily interaction with robots and robotic devices is partially established in niche applications such as exoskeletons, assistive devices and advanced machines for physical training where bodily interaction is the application. Bodily interaction is expected to develop a broader role in human robot interaction, for instance in manufacturing and in social and entertainment robotics. The direct exchange of force and motion in bodily interaction create a range of engineering challenges, but also entwine engineering directly with topics that traditionally reside in the realm of health and humanistic science, from biomechanics to human's social responses to the prompting and responses of physical interaction.
