Repository for Physical Human-Robot Interaction

Physical human-robot interaction (pHRI) scenarios can be constructed and used in experiments by utilizing virtual environments and haptic devices. The Novint Falcon haptic device provides participants force feedback and the Unity3D game engine is used to construct the environment. We have developed virtual games for two players through the haptic device, and we are currently using this to evaluate our robot planning and control algorithms by letting a human participant plays with a synthetic agent. We have made all the codes open source and we invite other researchers to share their game design!

In this page, we summarize online resources related to physical human-robot interaction (pHRI), including journals and conference, dataset, products, and news!
