The goal of the INBOTS project is to overcome the communication and understanding problem of stakeholders regarding interactive robots. A communication hub will be created to successfully discuss technical and non-technical aspects. The project thus seeks to build bridges between diverse groups such as technicians, business people, lawyers, ethicists, sociologists, end users, politicians, and the general public. An interactive robot is any robot that is interacting in close proximity with humans.

INBOTS is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) within the Horizon2020 funding initiative of the European Union.

As part of the project, DIN will analyse the current standardization landscape of interactive robots and identify standardization needs and potentials.
