Human-Centered Design Study on Cybersecurity of Soft Co-Robotic Systems

A team of researchers will study interactions between humans and “co-robots,” with the purpose of identifying how sensitive personal information is generated and shared between humans and the Internet of Things (IoT)-connected co-robots. Using human-centered design research methods (e.g., interviews, observations, scenarios, surveys, prototyping, testing), they will help characterize information that is vulnerable to breach and thus require strengthening of the security of storage and communication in future co-robotic systems based on tensegrity structures.
