IEA Webinar on Human-Robot Interaction Available on YouTube

Human factors and ergonomics are crucial topics for the future development of robotic technologies. The application of diverse robotic technologies in different settings such as manufacturing, healthcare, and others is increasing steadily. In particular, robotic systems that closely interact with humans have the potential to challenge human factors and ergonomics research. Associated risks and opportunities of close interactions between humans and robots have to be considered and evaluated. In this webinar, international experts on robotic research will present various perspectives on human factors and ergonomics in robotics.

This webinar was organized by the International Ergonomics Association’s Technical Committee on Human Factors in Robotics (HFiR).
