Cooperating Robots for Flexible ManufacturingWorkplace Generation for Human–Robot Collaboration

Cooperating Robots for Flexible Manufacturing: Workplace Generation for Human–Robot Collaboration [Human Robot collaboration (HRC) is a promising concept for increasing the flexibility and reconfigurability of the production workplaces. However, there are still open research issues regarding the effective design of the Human–Robot (HR) workplace, as well as their task allocation. This chapter presents a method for evaluating alternative Human Robot (HR) collaborative workplace designs considering both the physical layout and the allocation of tasks to robots and humans. A decision-making framework is used to generate multiple alternatives and evaluate them against a number of criteria including ergonomics, cost, available floor space, accessibility of resources etc. This method is implemented as a software prototype within a 3D simulation environment and is demonstrated in an automotive industry case study.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[Human Robot collaboration (HRC) is a promising concept for increasing the flexibility and reconfigurability of the production workplaces. However, there are still open research issues regarding the effective design of the Human–Robot (HR) workplace, as well as their task allocation. This chapter presents a method for evaluating alternative Human Robot (HR) collaborative workplace designs considering both the physical layout and the allocation of tasks to robots and humans. A decision-making framework is used to generate multiple alternatives and evaluate them against a number of criteria including ergonomics, cost, available floor space, accessibility of resources etc. This method is implemented as a software prototype within a 3D simulation environment and is demonstrated in an automotive industry case study.]
