Human Centred Robotics puts humans in the centre of technological developments and represents a vision of the future where various kinds of intelligent robots that will coexist with humans. These intelligent robots serve humans in daily life or in a hazardous environment, including home or personal service robots, entertainment robots, education robots, medical robots, healthcare and rehabilitation robots, search and rescue robots.
This special issue will focus on original papers of innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements, as well as novel applications and business models which are related to the field of human-centred robots or intelligent service robotics.
