Human-Machine-Interaction and Communication

The development and control of robots is an interdisciplinary science including computer science (artificial intelligence), electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and psychology. Robots operate in risky and inaccessible areas. They are also able to help people with their work or in their everyday lives. Autonomous robotic systems with basic interactive skills have great potential in various fields of application such as illness, care or therapy.

For the interaction with the environment and further development of highly-technological robots, the acquisition of social skills and the development of scene analysis is highly relevant. The aim is to optimize the interaction patterns of the autonomous robots by evaluating workflows between man, machine and product.
