This paper describes a novel approach in human robot interaction driven by ergonomics. The new protocol optimises human-robot relative position and orientation based on human ergonomics. An RGB-D camera is used to calculate and monitor real-time human joint angles and to compute the current ergonomics state. The algorithmic framework identifies causes of… CONTINUE READING
