Project Details


The DrapeBot project aims at human-robot collaborative draping. The robot is supposed to assist during the transport of the large material patches and to drape in areas of low curvature. The role of the human is to drape regions of high curvature. To enable an efficient collaboration, DrapeBot develops a gripper system with integrated instrumentation, low-level control structures, and AI-driven human perception and task planning models. All of these developments aim at a smooth and efficient interaction between the human and the robot. Specific emphasis is put on trust and usability, which will be the main contribution of the HRI lab to the project.
