WELCOME We have entered an era in which Artficial Intelligence is heavily influencing our daily lives. Robots can be viewed as the concrete and tangible embodiment of AI. At the University of Twente we conduct research on the development of human-centered robotics: robots that operate in an environment dominated and controlled by people. This environment dictates our technological research on robots, but also shapes our research concerning the soietal and organisational embedding of robots. In this symposium you will learn what human-centered robotics entails, not only from an academic perspective, but also from a societal and business perspective, taking the form of “duo presentations� by members of the Twente Robotics ecosystem.

LAB TOURS & DEMO MARKET WEARABLE ROBOTICS LAB Wearable robots can be used to either augment, train, or supplement human motor function. Examples of such robots are exo-skeletons, bionic prostheses, exo-suits, and body worn collaborative robots. The Wearable Robotics Lab (WRL) is used for development, testing and evaluation of these wearable robots in a safe and real-life environment. Contact: a.q.l.keemink@utwente.nl PRECISION ENGINEERING LAB Precision Engineering considers the development of model-based methods for the design and control of high-precision systems. The main research topics are efficient flexible multibody modelling, design principles for accurate positioning, high-stroke flexure joints, and adaptive model-based control. Precision manipulators for various societal and industrial challenges are designed and controlled. Contact: w.h.j.hakvoort@utwente.nl SURGICAL ROBOTICS LAB The Surgical Robotics Lab (SRL) has a dynamic research agenda, and we consist of a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, clinicians, and industrial collaborators. We focus on developing innovative solutions for a broad range of clinically-relevant challenges, including magnetic actuation systems, endovascular instruments, and collaborative robotics for surgical applications. Contact: c.m.heunis@utwente.nl


LAB TOURS & DEMO MARKET ROBOTICS AND MECHATRONICS LAB Robotics and Mechatronics (RaM) deals with application of modern systems and control methods to practical situations. Focus is on robotics as a specific class of mechatronic systems. The research of the group is application oriented. The main goal is to investigate the applicability of modern systems, imaging and control methods to practical situations in robotics. Contact: d.dresscher@utwente.nl HUMAN MEDIA INTERACTION LAB The Human Media Interaction (HMI) lab does research into multimodal interaction: from brain wave computer interfaces to social robots. We strive to make robots behave as socially appropriate as possible in a given situation, resulting in autonomous robots that are social and that can assist humans. Applications range from helping the elderly in their homes to engaging visitors in outdoor touristic sites. Contact: g.englebienne@utwente.nl VIRTUAL REALITY AND SMART INDUSTRY LAB The Virtual Reality Lab (VR-lab) and Smart Industry lab (SI-lab) are equipped with the newest technology for visualization, interaction, collaboration and communication. The emphasis here is on determining, presenting and experiencing the consequences of choices made throughout different phases of development trajectories. Attention is also paid to insight into mutual relationships and dependencies between various disciplines. Contact: r.g.j.damgrave@utwente.nl
