The objective of this STREP is to research integrative concepts of advanced robotic systems to be seen as collaborative agents in various environments working together with humans by design suitable architectures and technologies to achieve this goal.
We will propose evolution strategies toward ?collaborative-working-centred? design of robotic systems and ?IST robotics? concepts on the basis of sound collaborative practices, new technologies such as virtualized mixed environments, multimedia communication, ubiquitous environments, teleworking schemes, etc. This project
will propose objectives that will enable the take up and use of robotics to increase in existing areas and enter new areas where robotics can support human endeavours. Hence, one of the aims of this STREP is to redefine the whole notion of robotic ?work? as agent contributions including advanced robotic systems through different collaborative schemes.
