Due to demographic and epidemiological changes, more and more older people are in need for care in everyday life. The project KoBo34 focuses on the multi-professional development of intuitive interaction with a cooperative assistive robot as a complex intervention to support participation and autonomy in older individuals in geriatric care. The project is carried out by the TUM Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM), the University of Applied Sciene Rosenheim, robot manufacturerer Franka Emika and the Center for Cognitive Sciences at TU Darmstadt.

The subproject managed by the TUM RSI aims to work on following research and technology fields:

  • Collision detection and classification in Human-Robot-Interfaction
  • Safe Human-Robot-Interaction
  • Robot Whole-Body Control and Interaction
  • Bi-manual manipulation control
  • Independent learning of robotic skills
