This year, the FourByThree consortium has also worked towards hosting a special session at IEEE’s conference on Emerging Technologies And Factory Automation (ETFA), which will take place in Limassol (Cyprus) on September 12-15 2017.
Finally, three of the papers dealing on safe human-robot collaboration (including currently available technologies, planning and scheduling, verification and dependability, long-term autonomy, as well as the human perspective) have been accepted by the organizing committee and will be presented in a regular technical session.
