Abstract

This paper investigates the progression of human hand trajectory variabilities during a pick-and-place task. A user study is conducted and human hand positions are tracked optically. Standard deviations of human hand positions over all trajectories within a trial are computed point-wise orthogonally to the direct path between start and goal positions. Statistical tests reveal a decrease of standard deviations from hand start to goal positions. Moreover, stronger variations of standard deviations are noted in during the center part of the trajectories. Contrary to expectations, a longitudinal study design does not reveal learning effects in terms of reduction of trajectory variabilities. The results suggest, that uncertainties of human hand positions increase with the distance to a goal location and could constitute a larger risk for collisions within a cooperative human-robot pick-and-place scenario, e.g. assembly.
