Research project


Research into the essence of human-robot collaboration in the workplace.

June 2022 - May 2025
Project Manager

This research aims to provide digital services for several companies from different manufacturing sectors to test their robotic solutions on Fluently’s digital platform and involve them in trainings based on tools of efficient human-robot collaboration. Through these trainings companies can get better insights on consideration of human and social aspects of robotics technologies.

The Fluently Project is granted under Horizon Europe Programme /Cluster 4 Digital, Industry and Space. Fluently brings 21 partners from 13 different countries from EU and outside EU. Big industrial firms and SMEs from robotics and manufacturing sectors collaborate with universities and research organizations to develop AI-based solutions in order to achieve true social human-robot interaction.

It aims to develop a smart interface unit (AI-based system) designed to enable frictionless use of robots, and set up a robo gym for the first European hub for human-robot interactive training, where human and robot can learn from each other a common work practice. TU/e researchers work on social interaction and social acceptance of robots in cooperation with other research partners that investigate the cognitive response to technologies of multiple and diversified target groups. Additionally, they contribute to build improved models of human-robot collaboration through organizational (contextual) factors and design model personalization for human and robot synergy in the team (behaviour interaction) with solid experience from the SSH discipline of Work and Organizational Psychology.
