New technology is enabling robots to be safer, cheaper, and to work in a wider variety of environments performing new tasks. Robots are starting to work side by side with people—helping doctors, police, fireman, farmers, factory workers, disabled patients, soldiers, cleaners, and warehouse employees. This presents profound new challenges for interaction, emotion, culture, and technology frameworks. Robots can only collaborate with us if they are designed for that purpose with safety, communication, and responsiveness in mind.
What you'll learn—and how you can apply it
In this lesson you’ll learn how to design safety systems for robots, interaction design for human-robot collaboration, testing designs by using robotics platforms, and considerations for future challenges in the design of these robots.
