This program is led by Swinburne University of Technology (SUT) with four projects that are based at both SUT and University of Technology Sydney.
Many high value-add manufactured products are subject to regulatory constraints and oversight (e.g. medical devices, defence and aviation) and require a complete digital thread across the product lifecycle.
In the context of collaborative robotic applications, such a thread needs to contain a number of components:
- a specification of the desired information and intended assurance needs of the process
- a specification of the tasks and behaviours to be exhibited by both robot and human in a collaboration scenario,
- the ability to optimise and test such specifications before putting them into practice,
- the monitoring and documentation of accomplished tasks and behaviours and,
- the inspection of task outcomes.
This Program will develop tools for the specification, capturing, monitoring and evaluation of such a digital thread in human-robot and robot-human collaboration scenarios. This work is synergistic with other Programs and will develop skills and capacity within industry.
