Laboratory for Human-Robot Interaction

The Laboratory for Human-Robot Interaction is a laboratory for the development and testing of robot applications that share workplaces with humans. The laboratory enables manufacturers and users to analyze scenarios of human-robot cooperation precisely, to simulate them and to measure contact forces when collisions occur.

  • Interactions when humans and robots come into contact (force and momentum) with different force test stands and comparison with specifications form standards
  • Development and evaluation of sensor technologies for collision avoidance (workplace monitoring) and collision detection (tactile sensor systems)
  • Development of safe robot kinematics, evaluation of factors influencing contact forces and implementation of measures for safe
