Trajectory-based Optimization of Safety and Process Efficiency in Human-Robot Collaboration
Authors: Sumona Sen, Hans Juergen Buxbaum
Abstract: The interaction between humans and robots in industrial applications of human-robot collaboration has so far been determined almost exclusively by technically oriented machine programmers and operators. The task allocation and especially the programmed trajectories of the robot are regularly subordinated to technical aspects, mental or cognitive demands of the human are usually not considered. The aim of this research is the investigation and optimization of robot movements considering cognitive and ergonomic aspects. The stress on humans caused by the workstation is to be reduced and the safety in the not harmless collision scenario is to be increased.
Keywords: Human, Robot Collaboration, Situation Awareness, Human in the Loop
