TOPICS OF INTEREST:
-How to improve the existing modeling of the human and effectively apply it to achieve ergonomic human-robot collaboration?
-What sensory and feedback systems are required?
-Are the existing control methods sufficient to enable the robot to facilitate the ergonomic working conditions of the human, and what control methods are most suitable?
-How can robot learning methods be utilized to this end?
-What are the challenges in achieving the proposed goal in different applications (i.e. industrial human-robot collaboration, wearable robots, service robots, etc.)?
