CFP: RA-L Special Issue on Innovations and Applications of Human Modelling in Physical Human-Robot Interaction


Physical Human-Robot Interaction (pHRI) is of great interest in robotics. Currently, we have good working knowledge about our engineered robots, but we still lack a deeper understanding about human behavior, and how to effectively use it for real-time reactive robot behavior in the context of pHRI. This understanding is crucial to evolve the pHRI paradigms into safer and more effective human-robot interactions. Therefore, progress and innovations in human modelling are necessary to significantly improve how human operators physically collaborate with Cobots, prostheses, exoskeletons, and other robotic devices.

This special issue aims to stimulate discussion and promote collaboration between the communities of robotics and biomechanics. Contributing authors will investigate the state of the art of human modelling and present modern human modelling techniques and tools to advance research in pHRI. The latest high-quality research results from both biomechanists and roboticists will be collected and presented.
