Safe adaptation for long term autonomy and human robot interaction

Track: Autonomy /collaborative and cloud

Date and Time: 15 Mar 2024 08:30-09:50

Organisers: Lorenzo Natale, Giorgio Cannata

Main questions to be answered: Is it possible to develop systems that optimize effectiveness in human robot interaction while adhering to safety constraints?

Additional questions: What are the challenges on the adoption of formal methods for the verification of robot behaviors?,

Additional questions 2: What are the potential benefits of proxy-tactile sensing for manipulation tasks in complex unstructured environments?

Workshop Description: To achieve autonomy in unstructured environments while interacting with humans, robots need to be able to adapt to different operational conditions, face unexpected situations and guarantee safety. These challenges are tackled by the HE projects Sestosenso and CONVINCE, although from different perspectives. Sestosenso proposes a new sensing technology, cognitive perception and control algorithms based on proximity and tactile sensors for safe autonomy and interaction. CONVINCE, on the other hand, proposes a deliberation layer able to detect unexpected situations and deploy contingency actions to guarantee safe operation. The goal of this workshop is to disseminate the aims and challenges of the projects showcase the initial results of their activities, discuss common challenges and find potential synergies between the projects. http://sestosenso.eu/ https://convince-project.eu/
