The project addresses the tender published by the BMBF "Autonomous Robots for Assistance Functions: Interactive Basic Skills" and is designed as an accompanying research project. The aim of the accompanying project is both the the combination of findings from the collaborative projects as well as the introduction of new research results from our own research, which include overarching topics of general value for the collaborative projects. On the one hand, the project aims to promote inter-project knowledge transfer in order to limit possible redundancies, and on the other hand, additional input in the form of recommendations for action is provided in order to strengthen work in the collaborative projects on issues of a more general nature. Finally, the project has set itself the task of ensuring the sustainability of the project’s results.
The focus of the research activities of the BAuA are the persons responsible for the function, control and safety of robots with (special regard to basic skills). In the context of work robots are considered to be serviced machine, tool or even “colleague”. For operators of service robots and technical personnel responsible for operation, adjustment maintenance or repair, robots present challenges and, unlike other machines, require situational flexibility and consideration of the socio-technical system. The project investigates to what extent this also applies to the basic skills of robots. The reliability and quality of the execution of basic skills of the systems such as handouts or accompaniments must also be assessed and possibly adjusted by technical staff.
The research project 'Autonomous Robots for Assistance Functions: Interactive Basic Skills' (ARAIG) is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), funding code 16SV7903.
