The challenge of this work is to study the design and development of human-robot collaboration (HRC) in cellular manufacturing. Based on the concept of human collaborative design, four main design factors are being identified and developed in an active HRC prototype production cell for cable harness assembly. Human collaborative design aims to optimize the(More)
The key challenge of this work is to research the safety design and development of a close range active human-robot collaboration system in which no governing safety standards and regulations are currently present. Active robot assistance in a human-centered cellular manufacturing system is very promising proposal, however safety is the uppermost(More)
The objective of this work is to enhance man-machine collaboration in cell production by task modeling approach. Task modeling provides a method to define and study the collaboration between man and machine. Six requirements have been derived as basis of development. In this work, the task modeling has extended classical HTA method to represent(More)
Extracting and transferring human skills is an important step towards creating an intelligent robot in a cooperative environment. Human skill contains human control skill and human motion skill. Many studies have been done to extract and transfer either human control skill or human motion skill successfully; however, the complete human-to-human skill(More)
The application of robot system to collaborate with human worker in production operation can greatly enhance manufacturing systems. In order to ensure successful implementation of such system, the effectiveness of the man-machine collaboration is the decisive factor. The main aim of this work is to model the collaboration between human and robot in cell(More)
Many researchers have focused on transferring human skills to robots by extracting those skills into the machine- understandable models. It is an important step towards creating an intelligent robot in a cooperative environment. These models not only can be employed to transfer human control strategy to robots, but also can be used to improve the new(More)
