Human-Robot Interaction Safety

Abstract: Safety and security in the manufacturing and assembling area is a standout amongst the most critical parts of assembling in the present high paced preparing situations. It is even placed above profits and production rates as they must follow the safety rules of federal agencies (eg. OSHA). Modern industrial robots have become ubiquitous in all aspects of manufacturing, working side by side with humans otherwise known as “Human-Robot interaction. This coexistence between robots and humans has led to the rise of safety concerns facing the manufacturing industry due to robots coming into collision with humans or other moving objects which cause major accidents. Our research project this semester is to apply off-the-shelf parts to the safety issues faced by the manufacturing industry. We are proposing the utilization of a camera associated with a Raspberry Pi 3 microcomputer, which will have the capacity to recognize the predetermined shade of specialists’ vests. The framework will be associated with a Raspberry Pi 3 transfer and OpenCV. The OpenCV Python program recognizes the predetermined shading, the hand-off influences the robot to stop quickly, maintaining a strategic distance from crashes. The entire discovery framework depends on the objective of minimal effort and high proficiency, where upgrades can simply be included.
