While interacting with a social robot, children have a need to express themselves and have their expressions acknowledged by the robot. A need that is often unaddressed by the robot, due to its limitations in understanding the expressions of children. To keep the child-robot interaction manageable the robot takes control, undermining children's...

A team develops competency by progressive mutual adaptation and learning, a process we call co-learning. In human teams, partners naturally adapt to each other and learn while collaborating. This is not self-evident in human-robot teams. There is a need for methods and models for describing and enabling co-learning in human-robot partnerships....

In collaborative robotic applications, human and robot have to work together during a whole shift for executing a sequence of jobs. The performance of the human robot team can be enhanced by scheduling the right tasks to the human and the robot. The scheduling should consider the task execution constraints, the variability in the task execution...

Becoming a well-functioning team requires continuous collaborative learning by all team members. This is called co-learning, conceptualized in this paper as comprising two alternating iterative stages: partners adapting their behavior to the task and to each other (co-adaptation), and partners sustaining successful behavior through communication...

In this review we address the human in human robot collaboration (HRC). Although there are different hypotheses on potential effects of HRC on job quality, defined as the quality of the working environment and its effect on the employee's well-being, a comprehensive theory is still lacking. How does HRC influence job quality on an individual...

This work provides insight into the scientific-ground work for the development of digital safety tools for human-robot interactions; GRIP - Guarding Robot Interaction Performance. GRIP is a digital safety management system under development for human-robot interactions (HRI) in an Industry 4.0 setting. GRIP draws knowledge from different sources...

The introduction of artificial teammates in the form of autonomous social robots, with fewer social abilities compared to humans, presents new challenges for human–robot team dynamics. A key characteristic of high performing human-only teams is their ability to establish, develop, and calibrate trust over long periods of time, making the...

We study a containment control problem (CCP) and a shape control problem (SCP) for systems whose initial condition is a random variable with known distribution. The two control problems both require exponential convergence to a desired trajectory, which is complemented by either; (i) a required cumulative distribution over a prescribed...

The number one cause of disability in the world is low-back pain, with mechanical loading as one of the major risk factors. To reduce mechanical loading, exoskeletons have been introduced in the workplace. Substantial reductions in back muscle activity were found when using the exoskeleton during static bending and manual materials handling....

We previously introduced a responsive joint attention system that uses multimodal information from users engaged in a spatial reasoning task with a robot and communicates joint attention via the robot's gaze behavior [25]. An initial evaluation of our system with adults showed it to improve users' perceptions of the robot's social presence. To...

In this paper we specify and validate three interaction design patterns for an interactive storytelling experience with an autonomous social robot. The patterns enable the child to make decisions about the story by talking with the robot, reenact parts of the story together with the robot, and recording self-made sound effects. The design...

Most human-centred robotic applications require robots to follow a certain pre-defined path. This makes the robot’s autonomous movements acceptable and predictable for humans. Planning a trajectory for the robot thus involves guiding it along this desired path. The classical approach of segmenting a path into multiple waypoints and tracking them...

Advanced robotics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things are transforming how humans and electrotechnical systems interconnect. With the introduction of new technologies, it is critically important to ensure that human safety remains at the centre of the human-machine relationship. Each year, several million workers are injured on the...

Creating ontologies is an expensive task. Our vision is that we can automatically generate ontologies based on a set of relevant documents to create a kick-start in ontology creating sessions. In this paper, we focus on enhancing two often used methods, OpenIE and cooccurrences. We evaluate the methods on two document sets, one about pizza and...

Back support exoskeletons are designed to prevent work-related low-back pain by reducing mechanical loading. For actuated exoskeletons, support based on moments actively produced by the trunk muscles appears a viable approach. The moment can be estimated by a biomechanical model. However, one of the main challenges here is the feasibility of...

Recent developments have introduced so-called cobots or cooperative robots, which place the machines on the work floor next to employees. A new challenge arises to keep these human robot interactions, safe and healthy, while also maintaining the sustainability and efficiency of the interaction. Here, we present a model, which can be a valuable...

Low-back pain is the number one cause of disability in the world, with mechanical loading as one of the major risk factors. Exoskeletons have been introduced in the workplace to reduce low back loading. During static forward bending, exoskeletons have been shown to reduce back muscle activity by 10% to 40%. However, effects during dynamic...

Despite advances regarding autonomous functionality for robots, teleoperation remains a means for performing delicate tasks in safety critical contexts like explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) and ambiguous environments. Immersive stereoscopic displays have been proposed and developed in this regard, but bring about their own specific problems, e...

Autonomous robots that operate in indoor, uncertain environments move around from one location to the next to fulfill a set of ordered task. To do so, they need a floor plan of the building to plan their route. In case the building is unfamiliar to a robot it can employ online mapping techniques, though these techniques are resource intensive...
