About the Workshop: This full day workshop will present recent developments in enhancing human-robot interaction in advanced intelligent robotic/telerobotic systems for movement rehabilitation and assistance. We aim to focus particularly on issues related to physical and kinesthetic interaction between patients and robots. The workshop will discuss a broad range of related subjects including safety, smart autonomy, mathematical modeling,
instrumentation and intelligent control algorithms. All of these will be in the context of patient-centered robotic/telerobotic systems for use in rehabilitation and assistance.
