|Topic:||Human-robot collaboration during assembly operations|
|Description:||For efficient human-robot collaboration it is necessary to know the movements of the human operator so that the working trajectories of the robot avoid the ones of the human as much as possible. The purpose of this project is to design a workplace where simple assembly operations (e.g. with LEGO bricks) would be performed by the robot and by the human together. The existing workplace must be equipped with a system for watching and analyzing the human movements.
1. Study the possibilities of HTC Vive VR set to watch the movements of the human.
2. Implement cloud connectivity to a selected cloud (e.g. Azure, Watson, MindSphere, …) and store the obtained trajectories of the human movements there. Analyze the trajectories in long term and compute typical working spaces for given assembly operations with respect to the chosen operator.
3. Implement operator recognition based on its face using existing face recognition framework such as in Azure.
4. Implement functionality for the robot so that it adapts its movements according to the operator that works currently in the working place based on the knowledge from the points above.
