Purpose and goal

The objective of the project is to perform research and development actions needed for the creation of a simulation tool that facilitates efficient and valid simulation of human-robot collaboration. In the end of the project a software demonstrator is available. A software demonstrator what has been used in a number of use cases defined by industry partners.

Expected results and effects

The result of the project is a demonstrator of a human-robot collaboration simulation tool for verifying and balancing human-robot collaboration. With the simulation tool, the industry will be able, in early design phases, to generate work instructions to a worker and programming code to a robot in an optimal workplace where robots´ and humans´ advantages are combined and utilised in a successful way.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is divided into a number of work packages that lead the project towards the overall objective. From each work package, knowledge will be developed and implemented in a demonstrator version. Throughout the project, the demonstrator tool will be tested and evaluated by the industrial and academic partners. Use cases from collaborating companies will be used to verify outcomes and provide feedback for further developments of the demonstrator.
