Riassunto analitico
Humans often work together on common tasks, such as lifting and positioning long<br>boards, or moving heavy objects.<br>The cooperation process includes a complex communication between human-beings<br>through their sensorial channels.<br>Most robot controllers for human-robot interaction try to stabilize the system and<br>while the user manipulates the object, the robot plays a passive role.<br>If we could understand the human-human physical interaction better, a robot might<br>be able to interact with humans more efficiently and smoothly. The robot could understand<br>the user’s commands following the implicit human-human communication<br>standards and become an active member during task execution.<br>Kinesthetic interaction is investigated in a simple lifting and moving task using a<br>virtual environment and a haptic interface as tools for our experimental research.
