Interactive Manual Assembly Operations for the Human-Centered Workplaces of the Future

Interactive Manual Assembly Operations for the Human-Centered Workplaces of the Future

In order to be competitive in a global scale, European factories should be operated by a highly skilled workforce supported by advanced automation and IT tools. INTERACT aims to utilize workers'; knowledge on executing manual assembly tasks and include it in the digital tools used to support design, verification, validation, modification and continuous improvement of human-centred, flexible assembly workplaces.

The project places the following areas of particular interest at the center of its research:

  • Shop-floor sensing architectures that incorporate new low-cost sensor systems for retrieving data about human-based work activities in real time.
  • Advanced methods and tools for the automated recognition and classification of assembly operations from sensor data
  • Efficient generation and modification of accurate manual assembly simulation models based on task descriptions, controlled language and sensor data.
  • Development of smart applications for the continuous improvement of the human-centered manual assembly workplace.
