AI-based Toolkit for enhancing Human-Robot Interaction in Industry 4.0
WORKSUIT4.0 aims to bring to market a functional toolkit consisting of a wearable fibre-optic sensing system for 3D-human motion capturing in combination with advanced activity and process mining capabilities.
As enabling technologies, the toolkit hardware and software components will provide the means for offering safer human-machine interaction while maintaining enhanced collaboration levels. Moreover, the application of fundamental ergonomic principles (e.g. body postures) is pursued during the execution of process-related tasks, through real-time activity recognition and classification mechanisms. The outcome of WORKSUIT4.0 will be a key-driver for providing a wider spectrum of sophisticated safety and context-oriented applications in assembly processes while supporting continuous process control and optimization of Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) workplaces.
