On the role of stiffness and synchronization in human–robot handshaking

A system for soft human–robot handshaking, using a soft robot hand in conjunction with a lightweight and impedance-controlled robot arm.

Fast Handovers with a Robot Character: Small Sensorimotor Delays Improve Perceived Qualities

A system for fast and robust handovers with a robot character, and investigation of the effect of robot speed and reaction time on perceived interaction quality.

Handshakiness: Benchmarking for Human-Robot Hand Interactions

Benchmarking metrics for the comparison of human-robot to human-human handshaking interactions.

Benchmarking Soft Actuators for Human-Robot Interactions

An analysis of human-human interactions that shows that the distribution of contact pressure is a relevant benchmarking metric to judge the perceived quality of human-robot interactions.
