Abstract

COVR is a European project driven by five national research and technology organizations. Through the development of an intuitive toolkit and a range of testing protocols for validation of safety for robots sharing space with humans, it will increase the safety of all types of collaborative robots across all domains with special attention to rehabilitation robotics.
