Development of a Haptic Interface for Safe Human Roobt Collaboration

Ioannis Iossifidis

Abstract

In the context of the increasing number of collaborative workplaces in industrial environments, where humans and robots sharing the same workplace, safety and intuitive interaction is a prerequisite. This means, that the robot can (1) have contact with his own body and the surrounding objects, (2) the motion of the robot can be corrected online by the human user just by touching his artificial skin or (3) interrupt the action in dangerous situations. In the current work we introduce a haptic interface (artificial skin) which is utilized to cover the arms of an anthropomorphic robotic assistant. The touched induced input of the artificial skin is interpreted and fed into the motor control algorithm to generate the desired motion and to avoid harm for human and machine.
