 Recent progress in physical Human‐Robot Interaction (pHRI) research showed in principle that human and robots can actively and safely share a common workspace. The fundamental breakthrough that enabled these results was the human-centered design of robot mechanics and control. This made it possible to limit potential injuries due to unintentional contacts. Previous projects, in particular the PHRIENDS project in which a part of the consortium has been involved, provided remarkable results in these directions, constituting the background foundation for this proposal. Recent progress in physical Human‐Robot Interaction (pHRI) research showed in principle that human and robots can actively and safely share a common workspace.

 Finally, self explaining interaction and communication frameworks will be developed to enhance the system usability and make the multimodal communication between human and robot seamless. Finally, self explaining interaction and communication frameworks will be developed to enhance the system usability and make the multimodal communication between human and robot seamless.
  The project focuses on two industrial use cases that explicitly contain deliberate physical interaction between a human and a robot co‐worker,​ as well as on professional service scenarios in hospitals, in which medical staff and an assisting robot interact closely during daily work. These prototypical applications will pave the way towards new and emerging markets, not only in industry and professional services, but possibly also in household robots, advanced prostheses and rehabilitation devices, teleoperation,​ and robotic surgery. Generally, results of this project are expected to strongly impact all applications where interactive robots can assist humans and release them from dangerous or routine tasks.  The project focuses on two industrial use cases that explicitly contain deliberate physical interaction between a human and a robot co‐worker,​ as well as on professional service scenarios in hospitals, in which medical staff and an assisting robot interact closely during daily work.
