Nice story, Ann. Yes, working with humans is tough for robots because humans are so unpredictable. Developers of autonomous cars refer to human-driven vehicles as "rogue vehicles." Some suggest that autonomous vehicles could take over the roads today if not for those unpredictable rogues.

Interesting research.  There is significant work being done pursuing robots working with humans, and we've featured robots being used as "robotic assistants" in surgery. For use in the factory, I'm sure there are major challenges with safety and other concerns.  Thanks.

I imagine this kind of technology would be particularly useful and important in medical applications where the mindmeld, so to speak, between a robotic surgical tool and the actual human surgeon would ensure the best outcome from a patient standpoint.

Glad you liked the story, naperlou. I agree. And I found this especially interesting as yet another way for robots to adapt to humans' idiosyncracies.

Ann, this is a very interesting use of robots.  It is encouraging that this research is looking at ways for robots to cooperate with humans.  Machines are meant to be an extension of ourselves, enabling us to do more in the same amount of time.
