HARRY2 proposes to fully exploit the normative view of collaborative robotics to allow for more advanced workspace sharing capabilities by:
Developing safety PLC software and motion controllers using industrially-rated components that are not specific to a given robot in order to ease and standardize integration of robots sharing their workspace safely.
Integrating state-of-the-art results of the project leader using these industrial hardware components. These results exploit the recommendations in terms of energy limits provided by ISO TS 15066 and prove the interest of energy based formulations of the control problem for safe collaborative robots: safety is no longer treated as an exception but considered as a constraint when computing the control solution in real-time.
Enabling the use of high-level and intuitive teaching interfaces reducing robot programming time and difficulty.
Developing a systematic and practical methodology for quantitative safety evaluation.
