Human-centered design of human-robot-interaction; Project 3 "Human-Robot-Interaction and assistance systems - task allocation in Smart Factories"

Project number: F 2418 Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Ongoing Project Planned end: 2020-06-30


As part of the digitalization of workplaces new technologies, assistance systems, and in particular interacting robots - with which people can work together without safety fences - will become state of the art in industrial production. The usage of such technologies in so-called Smart Factories should increase the efficiency of production of small lot sizes. In addition, employees will be supported and relieved by assistance systems and robots - even to cope with the resulting complexity. Nevertheless, the strains that could arise from the use of these technologies are still vague. Therefore the project develops heuristics for a strain-optimal human-robot task allocation, that also allow economical production. Hence, the overall objective is a prospective and humane human-robot task allocation, which can also be used in industry.
