Major technological improvements allow nowadays increasingly closer interaction of humans and robotic systems. This ranges from light weight to heavy as well as manufacturing to service and mobile to fixed robots. To enable a human-centred design of these innovative systems the human factors domain in all its areas of specialization like physical, cognitive and organizational ergonomics is essential.
