The application of robots in the same workspace with humans results, intended or unintended, in direct mechanical interaction. This requires additional sensory abilities of the robots. Besides sensor systems that help the robots to structure their environment, like cameras, radar sensors, etc., a sensor system on the robot’s surface is needed that is able(More)
Human robot co-operation becomes more and more important when using robots in daily life and is a key note in the design of humanoid robots. The authors are members of the newly founded centre of excellence “Humanoid robots – cooperating and learning systems” at the University of Karlsruhe. Our group of researchers is responsible for the human robot(More)
Human robot co-operation is a challenging topic, especially more complex co-operation patterns which do not just involve reactive force control. Our research comprises human robot co-operation between a humanoid household robot and a human partner working together in a kitchen. It is embedded in the collaborative research centre SFB 588, “Humanoid Robots –(More)
Diese Arbeit stellt einen neuen Ansatz zur Koordination der Armund Handbewegungen eines anthropomorphen Roboterarmes vor. Durch die Verwendung sogenannter Koordinationsobjekte können die von unabhängigen Systemen gesteuerten Bewegungen auf einfache Weise koordiniert werden. Diese Koordinationsobjekte erlauben dabei auch komplexere Koordinationsmuster, wie(More)
