The theme at this year’s ICRA conference in Karlsruhe, Germany is “Anthropomatics – Technologies for Humans”. Coined by a Karlsruhe informatics professor about 10 years ago, anthropomatics is the science of understanding and improving how humans and robots cooperate, interact and coexist.

Not surprisingly, robots and people have been busy mingling together in the ICRA exhibition hall! Here’s a look at some of the amazing robotic technology on display …
