[ICRA 2017 Workshop] Advances and challenges on the development, testing and assessment of assistive and rehabilitation robots: Experiences from engineering and human science research – PDF

Abstract
Assistive robots for health and welfare applications are required to display perceptual, cognitive and
bodily-kinaesthetic capabilities that are natural and intuitive for older people and persons with disabilities
to interact with, communicate with, work with as partners, and learn to adapt to their needs. However, the
embodiment of such capabilities has been scarcely studied, so it is still required that the health and social
care staff and the user groups could explore and learn how to exploit the capabilities of the assistive
robots. Therefore, a multidisciplinary approach to promote the study from the engineering and human
science to introduce the next generation of assistive robots is desired. The goal of this workshop is to
provide a forum for sharing the experiences from the engineering and human science research on the
development, testing and assessment of assistive robots and present the most recent advances and
challenges in order to foreseen novel designing approaches and user based studies addressing
healthcare and social welfare applications in the ambient assisted living from a world-wide perspective
with point of departure in interdisciplinary research collaboration.
