The project is focused on a collaborative robot cell concept as an alternative to the serial production line that is currently used in major slaughterhouses. With a robot cell, where a robot and an operator share tasks and workload, we get the strength of the robot and the flexibility of the operator. This will help reduce the repetitive stress injuries that plague workers in the industry and it will ease the transition to fully automated robots that can perform the entire process by themselves. The project requires innovation in the way humans and robots collaborate and the development of robots that can adapt to the high variation in both products and the interaction with humans. The project contains three labor-intensive cases.
The first case, sensing assistance, will visualize information about the product to the operator. The second, robot assistant, will present the product optimally to the operator. The third case, co-worker robot, will allow an operator and a robot to perform different tasks simultaneously inside a shared workspace.
