This workshop touches on many interesting topics of current
human-machine co-operation research, with a clear focus on how to
bring prototypes to everyday life.
Also, a time slot is foreseen to allow active participation by all
The workshop will identify and discuss common aspects and key
differences of navigation assistance in different domains
(automotive, surgical and rehabilitation).
Key topics will include application-dependent environment
interpretation, promising human-machine interfaces (visual, haptic,
auditory), human versus system adaptation (user modelling, plan
recognition), and evaluation methods.
The workshop aims at letting researchers working on navigation
assistance in different domains discuss required successes to
achieve future navigation assistance products.
This may provide insights and guidelines to focus on in future
research in this domain.

Presentations (10-15 min) by selected participants
16:00 - 16:15
Please submit your abstract here:
- Application-dependent environment interpretation: e.g.
estimation of impedance characteristics of the environment,
identification of (static or moving) objects that influence
navigation decisions, prediction of socially-compliant motion
- Promising human-machine interfaces: e.g. visual, haptic,
- Human versus system adaptation: e.g. user modelling, plan
recognition (intention estimation)
- Design guidelines
- Evaluation methods of shared control approaches
- Research (with outreach to industry)
- Lecture (with panel discussion)
This workshop is jointly organized by the FP7
project RADHAR and H-Haptics.
Three institutes organize the workshop:
- KU Leuven: Joris De Schutter, Emmanuel Vander Poorten,
Alexander Hüntemann, Eric Demeester
- TU Delft: David Abbink
- ALU-Freiburg: Boris Lau, Markus Kuderer
We plan to publish all presentations and a summary of the
panel discussion online, either on the euRobotics 2012 site or on
the RADHAR website (www.radhar.eu).
The European Robotics Forum, organized by the European
robotic networks EURON, EUROP, the euRobotics Coordination Action
and hosted by The Danish Technological Institute, is in the
field of robotics the meeting point for engineers, scientists and
business people from all over Europe. The event will take
place from 5-7 March 2012 in Odense, Denmark.
More than 300 robotics researchers from industry and academia,
as well as entrepreneurs and public investors, are expected to
discuss the latest developments, research challenges and business
opportunities for European robotics.
This year's theme of the European Robotics Forum is "European
Robotics towards new horizons".
