Deliverable 6.1: Overview of Risks When Using Robots in Crowds

This document aims at identifying risks that may arise when a robot navigates through a crowd and to provide a preliminary set of tools for identifying and evaluating potential physical hazards deriving from interaction with crowdbots.

For the scope of this document, we define crowdbots as mobile robots operating in public, densely populated spaces, capable of establishing physical contacts with human beings.
