Seminar WS 2015/2016: New User Interfaces for Human-Robot Collaboration


Usually industrial robots are kept in secured environments, e.g. cages, to protect human workers from injuries and accidents in general. In contrast to this, so called cooperative robots are designed to (often literally) work hand in hand with humans. In order to do this without risk, cobots must be aware of their surroundings and of actions of human workers. In this practical seminar you will gain hands-on experience with actual robots, newest sensor technologies and software components, and you will combine them to realize cobot scenarios.
