Robotics at the Eindhoven University of Technology is a fast growing field of research. Robots can improve the quality of life, taking over dangerous or difficult jobs. Especially with the aging of the population robots can help extending the independent living of elderly. With the accelerating development of enabling technologies, robotics is rapidly expanding, as recognized world wide. Especially for robots cooperating with people, we are facing many interesting challenges, which can only be solved through the joint effort of many experts with different backgrounds. Therefore, various faculties of the TU/e are combining their strengths, working together with many important players all over the world; Academia, industry, but also with the users.
