The 12th International Workshop on Human-Friendly Robotics (HFR 2019)

The 12th International Workshop on Human-Friendly Robotics (HFR 2019) will be organized on October 24-25, 2019, by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and will take place at the Hotel Posta, Reggio Emilia, Italy.

The growing need to automate daily tasks, combined with new robot technologies, is driving the development of human-friendly robots, i.e., safe and dependable machines, operating in the close vicinity to humans or directly interacting with them in a wide range of domains. The technological shift from classical industrial robots, which are safely kept away from humans in cages, to robots that are used in close collaboration with humans, is facing major challenges that need to be overcome.

The organizing committee is composed by Federica Ferraguti and Valeria Villani (General Chairs) and Lorenzo Sabattini (Program Chair) from the ARSControl research group of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and Marcello Bonfè (Publicity Chair) from the University of Ferrara. The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers so to share knowledge on all aspects related to human-robot interaction and the introduction of robots into everyday life.

Objective:

The objective of the workshop is to stimulate a focused single-track discussion and bring together researchers so to share knowledge on design, control, safety and ethical issues, concerning the introduction of robots into everyday life.

European Robotics Forum 2019 (ERF2019)

ERF2019

ERF2019Over 900 European robotics top experts attended the 10th edition of the European Robotics Forum, the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe, was held in Bucharest, Romania, in March 2019,

ERF2019 hosted a major exhibition where companies, universities and research institutes showcased the most advanced European prototypes, products, services and projects funded under EU’s Horizon 2020 research programme. With over 50 workshops highlighting the newest robotics research, the event offered Romanian companies and universities a unique window to the latest developments on the European markets.

 

This year’s theme was “Robotics for Humanity, AI for the real world”.
