Future autonomous service robots are intended to operate in open and complex environments. This in turn implies complications ensuring safe operation. The tenor of few available investigations is the need for dynamically assessing operational risks. Furthermore, a new kind of hazards being implicated by the robot's capability to manipulate the environment(More)
Autonomous systems are often needed to perform tasks in complex and dynamic environments. For this class of systems, traditional safety assuring methods are not satisfying due to the unknown effects of the interacting system with an open environment. Briefly speaking: What is not known during the development phase, can not be adequately considered. In order(More)

Mobile service robots are expected to provide services in various domains of life. Herein, the main challenge for the robot is the execution of complex tasks within an unstructured dynamic environment. In order to achieve the necessary highly flexible behavior, mobile service robots must have a high degree of autonomy. However, although much effort is spent(More)
Companion-systems (CS) are a vision of future technical systems, which take into account the user’s abilities, preferences, requirements and current needs, reflecting the user’s situation and emotional state. They are competent, always available, cooperative, trustworthy, and cooperative service partners [7]. For the realization of CS, cognitive processes(More)
