Workshops on technical and societal aspects of WRs at ExoBerlin
October 22, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Benchmarking Wearable Robots: from key enabling technologies, experimental methods to final applications”
Workshop title: “Benchmarking WRs and Educating WR experts”
EUROBENCH is organising a workshop, together with the COST Action on Wearable Robots, to discuss technical and societal aspects of Wearable Robots. It will be an oportunity to discuss the guidelines on benchmarking Wearable Robots (from key enabling technologies, to testbeds and testing methods) as well as barriers to adoption and standardization processes.
Wearable robots (WRs) are increasingly moving out of the labs towards real-world applications. In order to be effectively and largely adopted by final end-users, a common benchmarking framework needs to be developed, at three main levels:
- WRs’ key enabling technologies should be characterized in order to allow fair and comprehensible comparisons of different systems performances;
- the experimental methods and protocols to test the systems with the human-in-the-loop should be replicable across different labs;
- the evaluation in the final application scenarios should consider the specific features of the deployment scenarios and end-users in a common testing framework. >li>
The COST Action on Wearable Robots and the EUROBENCH consortium will be holding an open discussion and parallel working groups on this topic to provide guide the discussion on how to design testbeds and testing methods for WRs. Possible barriers to adoption and standardization processes will be also discussed.
No registration is required for this workshop; seats are available on first come first serve basis in room A of the exo-Berlin venue.
