Human-robot interaction and collaboration is a major topic in human-coupled robotic systems, which allows the robot to understand and cooperate with the human. In the design of traditional human-robot interactions, physical human-robot interactions have gained considerable interests for robust operating of robotic systems. With the development of neural technologies, neural interface has been implemented for achieving natural human-robot interaction and collaboration, which makes the human operate the robotic system more conveniently. This kind of interactions can be also called cognitive human-robot interaction. Neural interfaces of cognitive human-robot interaction and collaboration are widely used in human-coupled robotic systems in many different domains, such as rehabilitation, entertainment and so on.

The new generation of human-robot interaction technologies are supposed to enhance cognitive abilities of human-coupled robotic systems, which aiming to achieve natural interaction and collaboration modes between human and robots. Cognitive human-robot interactions include brain-machine interface with electroencephalographic (EEG), muscle signals with electromyography (EMG), eye-tracking interactions, gesture and so on. Neural interfaces of cognitive human-robot interaction with neural signals (e.g. EEG, EMG et al.) can obtain the intention of human more directly. However, how to achieve robust interaction with neural interfaces is a challenge for cognitive human-robot interaction. With robust interactions based on neural interfaces, another important issue for human-coupled robotic systems is how to collaborate with human naturally.

This research topic is therefore proposed to promote the fundamentals and technologies of cognitive human-robot interaction with neural interfaces for human-coupled robotic systems, which includes but not limited to:
