Project Description

Abstract

Human robot cooperation is now recognized as the next breakthrough in robotics and it is one of the pillars of the so called Industry4.0.

The objective of this research is to develop and integrate the technologies and the control strategies that are necessary for implement a safe and efficient cooperation between humans and robots in an industrial scenario.

The “Teach by Demonstration” (or Learning from Demonstration) programming technique is a paradigm that enables robots to autonomously perform new tasks, without any need of human programming. It is not a simple record and replay technique, but a learning and generalizing one, that allows to maximize the flexibility and efficiency during the robot programming phase.

This teaching strategy also allows the user to easily re-program the activities of the robot or change only a portion of the task without reprogramming the whole one.

Moreover, an intelligent behavior of the robot can be obtained: it is able to understand the surrounding environment and the action of the user in order to safely adapt its behavior during the execution of the task.
