About the event

In the realm of robotics for agile production, human-robot collaboration is becoming a prominent trend.

The introduction of Cobots into the shop floor could enhance working conditions for humans while increasing efficiency and productivity, even more so when Cobots are integrated with low-code or no-code solutions that increase direct interaction with workers. This innovation might revolutionize the future of agile production, however, it comes with important challenges: questions around safety of workers and human-experience are fundamental to ensure a responsible adoption of Cobots in agile production. 

So if you’re around Trondheim, come join our last workshop scheduled from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM CET, on the 21st of November, followed by a networking lunch

The workshop co-organized with SINTEFCobots in Agile Production: Redefining the Future of Human-Robot Interaction”, offered in face-to-face format, is designed to offer a platform for expert talks and open discussions among stakeholders from the robotics community. 

The primary focus of this workshop will revolve around the effects of Cobots on the human-experience and trends and challenges of the use of Cobots in the agile production sector. The workshop will also include demo presentations of low-code and no-code robot solutions!

Participants will be invited to reflect upon their experience and provide feedback on the Robotics4EU’s Responsible Robotics Compass in an interactive session. 

Keynote Speakers: 

  • Federico Manzi, Researcher, Department of Psychology, Catholic University of Sacred Heart, Milan.

Federico Mazi is a researcher at the Catholic University of Sacred Heart in Milan, with expertise in Theory of Mind development and human-robot interaction, collaborating with national and international universities. He holds two doctorates in Psychology and Person and Formation Science.

  • Fabio Sgarbossa, Full Professor of Industrial Logistics, Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, NTNU.
