Human Machine Interaction
Thanks to their compliance continuum robots are inherently safe in direct contact with or in proximity to living beings. The interaction and control by the operator has to be designed intuitively according to the operation state (autonomously, semi-autonomously or teleoperated). At LKR we are investigating input devices for motion control as well as assistive function for the operator.
