Innovative production processes, industrial manufacturing and logistics - what do they share? Perhaps it is the demand from industry for safe and compliant human-robot collaboration. It has increased tremendously in the past years. Issues of reliability, ethical and legal implications are among the most demanding topics - apart from safety issues for humans in such a work environment.
Within the framework of complAI (the award winning project), the project team is developing an assistance system to support and guide organisations in using AI. The team has developed a catalog of criteria to evaluate robot-based processes from the perspective of ethics, law and safety.
The Robotics Evaluation Lab (REL) is the first accredited test facility in Europe for the evaluation of biomechanical force loads regarding a safe human-robot collaboration.
