Intuitive Programming for Human-Robot Collaboration in Assembly
Creating the process flows of technical industrial systems such as robots, conveyor systems or transport vehicles is a major challenge for many companies. Process planners have to learn different operating concepts, since each system manufacturer provides its own control software, and they also have to establish the synchronization between the systems with external solutions. Consequently, BIBA is researching an overall solution that can integrate all systems and thus standardize process planning. This will reduce the barrier between humans and technology, relieve the process planners and enable them to work more effectively. In addition, intuitive operating concepts, such as a visual programming language and a digital twin, should guarantee ease of use and enable even non-experts to plan processes with multiple systems.
