In February 2022 the Mari4_YARD project partner Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems and Automation ( LMS) presented the paper “AI-based vision system for collision detection in HRC applications” on ScienceDirect, open access Journals and Books.
Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) enabling mechanisms require real-time detection of potential collisions among human and robots. Taking
under consideration the already existing standards and the literature, most of collision detection techniques require the integration of sensorial
systems on the robot aiming to identify the contact events. This paper deals with a novel approach for the identification of human and robot
collision based on vision systems. Moreover, Artificial Intelligent (AI) algorithms are required to classify the captured data near real-time and to
provide a score about the collision status (contact or non-contact) between a human and the robot.
