Research on high level human-robot interaction systems that aims skill acquisition, learning of dialogue strategy and so on requires large scaled experience database based on social and embodied interaction experiments. However, if we used real robot systems, costs for development of robots and performing many experiments will be too huge. If we choose(More)
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 aim of this work is to propose a cloud computing architecture simulation platform for social human-robot interaction. This paper explains the design and development of this system named SIGVerse in four main components, namely (1) SIGServer as the central server, (2) Agent Controller for user applications, (3) Service Provider, and (4) SIGViewer as 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)
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)
The main aim of this work is to address task decomposition of man-machine collaboration by hierarchical task analysis (HTA) approach. The success of HTA in ergonomics study has inspired this work to implement this method in practical cable assembly operation in cell production system. In the development, both the cable assembly tasks of human worker and(More)
