Opening event: Human Robot Interaction Lab at AAU - Aalborg

Human robot interaction is one of the key competences when robots are moving out of the structured environment on the factory floor and into more collaborative or social situations.

The Technical Faculty of IT and Design at AAU is especially well equipped for the challenges in this field with dedicated researchers working on the future methods and tools for interacting and collaborating with proactive autonomous robots. To coordinate and harvest the synergies across departments, the new HRI lab is established to provide a single entry point for everybody interested in future human robot interaction.  

Join us for the opening event and get a look behind the scenes at the brand new Human Robot Interaction Lab at AAU's Technical Faculty of IT and Design.

Meet researchers and students working on the future methods and tools for interacting and collaborating with proactive autonomous robots, including drones, service robots and rehabilitation robots.
