TWO LINK COMPLIANT ROBOT MANIPULATOR FOR HUMAN ROBOT COLLISION SAFETY

Muhammad Rehan Ahmed, Ivan Kalaykov

Abstract

For successful human robot interaction (HRI), collision safety as well as position accuracy are equally important. Robot is required to demonstrate safe sharing of work space with humans and to exhibit adaptable compliant behavior that comply with interaction forces generated upon contact. We present an approach for acquiring reconfigurable compliance using semi-active actuation mechanism, where compliance is achieved by controlling the viscous properties of magneto-rheological (MR) fluid. In this paper, we have discussed three essential modes of motions required for safe physical HRI. Then, we have shown collision safety of our robot based on static and dynamic collision testing in different motion modes. Finally, experimental results validate the significance of our proposed approach for human robot collision safety and high position accuracy.
