Inaugural address David Abbink
On Friday March 22nd 2019, David Abbink gave his inaugural address as professor of Haptic Human-Robot Interaction at Delft University of Technology. In his talk David gave an overview of his work, argued why we need to focus more on robot symbiosis than robot autonomy, let the whole audience hop on one leg, and stated he would strive to revitalize the truly multi-disciplinary spirit of the Macy Conferences on Cybernetics. Afterwards, the audience could experience five haptic demo’s.

Human-robot symbiosis improves interaction
Semi-automated vehicles on our motorways, a mobile robot arm that can effectively intervene in a disaster area, drones: these are all examples of robots that exist our unpredictable environment. These robots cannot manage without human intervention, however: behind every successful robot there’s a human being. A strong foundation for operating robot arms and robot vehicles is haptics: our innate ability to feel our body.
