researchXchange: Human-Robot Collaboration in the Industry 10. Mai'19

Human-Robot Collaboration for Industrial Applications


Collaborative robots are robots that can interact with humans in a safe way. Multi-task and flexible, they are particularly suited for small to medium production lots and for customized production. Correctly implemented, they can reduce production costs and possibly avoid offshoring in high-wage countries such as Switzerland. In order for SMEs to fully benefit from the advantages of such robots, interfaces need to be developed to deal with the many challenges of human-robot interaction. In this presentation we will present our approach to collaborative robotics and the smart interface we are developing.


Dr. Sarah Degallier, Professor of Mathematics, BFH, Instuitute for Human Centered Engineering HuCE

Sarah Degallier Rochat has a BSc/MSc in mathematics and holds a doctorate degree in robotics from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. She is Professor of Mathematics at the BFH since 2014 and works as a researcher at the HuCE-roboticsLab. Her main research focus is collaborative robotics and its industrial applications. Her research aims at the development of smart workspaces that allow for the intuitive interaction and programming of cobots. She is also interested in the social implications of new industrial technologies.
