Human Robot Interaction

Rise of the robots


A new form of robots is emerging that allow robots to move from the factory and into our lives. 
Robotics technology is now reaching levels where more complex tasks are within reach. Robots will soon be endowed with human-like communication skills, perception, reasoning and motor control. This will facilitate effective human-robot interaction and autonomous task execution. We have been witnessing this progress already in the case of self-driving cars, autonomous aircraft and service robots, to name a few examples.
At Aalborg University, we have a network of researchers that work across disciplines to help attack the gap. In this talk, we will present some of the challenges being addressed by researchers collaborating across the university.


Thomas Bak is Professor and Head of the Department of Electronic Systems. He is also the coordinator of the robotics network at Aalborg University.
