  • Instead of being able to only judge distance between itself and its human co-workers, the human-robot collaboration system can identify each worker it works with, as well as the person’s skeleton model.
  • Using this information, the context-aware robot system can recognize the worker’s pose and even predict the next pose.
  • The research was an extension of the Symbiotic Human Robot Collaborative Assembly project.
