The past decades have seen robots move out from industrial floors to daily lives. They are no longer confined to closed environments but now co-exist and even collaborate with humans in unknown dynamic environments. In this regard, we must carefully deal with the interaction between a robot and its environment, including humans. In this talk, I will introduce some previous and ongoing works on robotic interaction control and human-robot collaboration. Two research questions will be addressed: (i) how to design adaptive or learning strategies for a robot to interact with its environment including humans? (ii) how to best use the complementary strengths of the human and robot in a specific task? These research problems will be elaborated with target applications, including surface exploration, human-robot collaborative manipulation, robotic rehabilitation, etc. Future works and promising research directions will be then outlined.
Dr Li is a Lecturer in Control Engineering with the Department of Engineering and Design, University of Sussex, UK. He received the BEng and MEng degrees from the Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in 2006 and 2008, respectively, and the PhD degree from the National University of Singapore, in 2013. From 2015 to 2017, he has been a Research Associate with the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, UK. From 2013 to 2015, he has been a Research Scientist with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore. Dr Li has active research in human-robot interaction, human motor control and their applications in semi-autonomous industrial robots and rehabilitation robots. He has led and participated in several research projects funded by UK EPSRC, Royal Society, EU, Singapore SERC, MDA, etc.
