Topic: Haptic Interfaces

Human-robot interaction is one of the main research fields in the robotics sector, due to its implications not only in the traditional application fields (such as medical robotics and teleoperation systems), but also in the industrial production systems. This research activity aims at developing novel multimodal interfaces to facilitate and render more safe the interaction between the human and the robot, with particular attention to the use of cutaneous force feedback in partial or full substitution of kinestetic feedback.
