Socio-Physical Cooperation for Industrial Human-Robot Systems

Socio-Physical Cooperation for Industrial Human-Robot Systems

The project aims to develop the next generation of collaborative robotic systems to support workers and improve human comfort and ergonomics. It combines robotics with the study of social and physical interactions within working environments. The research will directly impact the production line, enabling the adoption of wearable and collaborative robots (wearbots and cobot, respectively) in manufacturing. Besides, teleoperation is investigated to control operations in hard-to-reach and/or unsafe places remotely.
At the Rome Maker Faire, we will present our robot MOCA (MObile Collaborative robotic Assistant), in charge of navigating workplaces and physically interacting with operators thanks to its collaborative arm and artificial hand.




Socio-Physical Cooperation for Industrial Human-Robot Systems

Dr. Arash Ajoudani with the Human-Robot Interfaces and Physical Interaction (HRII) Lab group

Arash Ajoudani is a tenured senior scientist at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), where he leads the Human-Robot Interfaces and physical Interaction (HRI²) laboratory.
The HRI² group has a multidisciplinary approach, spanning theoretical, technical, and practical dimensions of modern collaborative systems. On the one hand, the HRI² research focuses on developing advanced control frameworks for mobile and fixed-base collaborative robots and wearable assistive devices to boost their interaction autonomy. On the other hand, cutting edge techniques and kinodynamic models are investigated to anticipate human socio-physical states.
The group is involved in two ambitious projects: the European Research Council’s (ERC) starting grant Ergo-Lean (https://www.ergolean.eu/) and European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme SOPHIA (https://project-sophia.eu/).
