About the Workshop

Safe human-robot interaction (HRI) has long been a hot topic in social robotics, which not only covers physical human-robot interaction (pHRI) but also non-contact HRI. The workshop gathers robotics researchers from academia and industry to exchange recent development and trend in safe HRI on different stages of interaction: sensing, modeling, and learning. Confirmed speakers are from a variety of backgrounds: communication, CS, EE, ME, Materials Sciences, etc.
