 Abstract: A primary objective of the "Autonomous Robotics and Human-Machine Systems" group at the "Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics" is the design of new algorithms and architectures aimed at filling the gap between aerial vehicles conceived as pure flying sensors and fully-mature flying robots that are able to deeply interact with the surrounding world. Within this research perspective, the group is currently exploring two main areas. Firstly, we aim at establishing a tight coupling (both haptic and "immersive" in a more generic sense) with human collaborators, that might be also remotely located. Secondly, we are exploring new methodologies to allow a physical and effective action in the flyable space of the MAVs. The talk will briefly review the consolidated result and also show the more recent preliminary results and directions of research. In particular the following projects will be presented in the talk: 1) Shared control and haptic teleoperation of multiple UAVs; 2) Synergetic haptic co-planning in cluttered environments; 3) Aerial grasping: planning and control of grasping-aware quadrotor trajectories; 4) The Flying Hand: a human–hand driven formation of UAVs to grasp and move objects. Both the theoretical methodologies behind the developed algorithms and the practical application with (multiple) quadrotors will be shown in the talk. Among the several theoretical methods that are used in these studies in order to tackle the related challenging problems we can mention "passivity-based control" and "graph-theoretical distributed control and estimation".
