Robotization and human factors

  title={Robotization and human factors},
  author={Kageyu Noro and Y. Okada},
This work describes the robotic and ergonomic considerations that become necessary when introducing robots into industry. The operating forces and motions of industrial robots are analysed in order to understand their functions, and the concept ‘degree of freedom’ is discussed as the method of symbolically representing the forms and functions of robots that resemble humans. Several examples of robots similar to humans in form or function are introduced. The issues presented here are… 
Interaction between man and robots
Worker selection of safe speed and idle condition in simulated monitoring of two industrial robots.
Two laboratory experiments were designed to investigate workers' perceptions of two industrial robots with different physical configurations and performance capabilities, and the maximum speed of robot arm motions that workers, who were experienced with operation of industrial robots, judged to be 'safe' for monitoring tasks.

Evaluation of one prototype voice-controlled robotic aid has shown the feasibility of robotic-assisted tasks in four areas: activities of daily living, vocation, recreation, and physical therapy.
Robot systems reliability and safety: a review
This paper presents a review of published literature on robot reliability and safety. The literature is classified into three main categories: robot safety; robot reliability; and miscellaneous.
Ethic Reflections about Service Robotics, from Human Protection to Enhancement: Case Study on Cultural Heritage
In a vision of future implications of human‐robot interactions, it is vital to investigate how computer ethics and specifically roboethics could help to enhance human’s life. In this chapter, the
Blue, white and steel collar: a case study of robot introduction
This study describes the human and organizational implications of introducing robots into an Israeli plant. Findings point at several gaps between the perceptions of senior management, middle


Robotics and Human Factors: Current Status and Future Prospects
There have been a few human factors studies, but more are needed, drawing in part on research in artificial intelligence, to support robotics for industrial productivity and military requirements.
