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.
