The main focus of the BIMROB project is the scientific investigation of the interaction between humans and robots when learning movements. Efficient and effective interaction configurations will be determined in order to allow humans and robots to acquire new movements or improve their performance at certain tasks that involve their sensorial and motor capabilities.
The search for configurations that allow humans and robots to jointly learn movements may result in a large number of applications: industrial robots may be retrained through the physical interaction with humans, instead of through the rewriting of lines of code; new devices and training programs for the rehabilitation of motor impaired patients may be designed.
We hope that the results will become important for applications ranging from sport training devices to rehabilitation.
BIMROB is funded by the Forum for Interdisciplinary Research (FiF) at the Technische Universität Darmstadt.
