Automatica 2018: Four areas where “cobots” fit in Industry

By |2020-04-22T14:42:05+00:00June 19th, 2018|Categories, Events|

Automatica 2018, the fair where Industry 4.0 takes shape, seems to have clear that the “Factory of the Future” involves collaborative robotics. The so-called “cobots” are based on the fact that they share the same workspace as operators - meaning, they can work safely around (and also with) people, without needing any cage or partition [...]

SocSMCs: making robots interact without words

By |2020-04-22T14:46:27+00:00October 2nd, 2017|Categories, Research|

When we shake hands with someone or help them moving furniture, our body is calculating much more than we know, even though we are not consciously aware. The direction in which our hand is moving, how much force is needed, how we keep the balance meanwhile… These are automatic decisions that are daily taken by [...]

Humanoid robots, imitation learning and torque control
