Safe Human-Robot Interaction
Humans and Robots in Shared Work Areas
High safety standards must be met when humans and robots work together in one area. Any risk of injury to humans must be fully eliminated. The development of new safety technologies and components for safe human-robot interaction is one of our main research specializations. What is more, we can test the safety of robots in our Human-Robot Interaction Laboratory.
