Augmented and Virtual Reality in Collaborative Robotics
This Project investigates co-design and development of immersive visualisation (i.e. augmented reality, virtual reality) approaches to simulate, prototype, and evaluate products and spaces for human-robot collaboration within real-world manufacturing processes and contexts. The benefits of using immersive visualisation approaches will include the ability to evaluate before, during, and after different collaborative robotic settings and necessary manufacturing process and spatial adaptations have been made. Additionally, human workers and decision makers can gain a better understanding of how a collaborative robot might affect their workplace and work procedures. Empowering these end-users through the co-design of immersive visualisations can improve collaborative robot acceptance rates and can allow for additional ideas about how to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and safety of human-robot collaboration.
