The general purpose of the work package 4 is the design and development of wearable technologies that provide adaptive physical support to skilled workers operating in tasks of outfitting and assembly. Specifically, the aim is the development of two spring-loaded exoskeletons, respectively for the upper-limb and lumbar support. The hardware is supported with AI-based control that allows the devices to adapt their behavior online and autonomously, to assist the operators according to the estimated user’s fatigue and based on the recognized task.
The deliverable D4.3, reports the development of a novel perception system that allows the detection/recognitions of the tasks being executed by human operators, facilitating the selection of the appropriate support settings for exoskeletons in an automated manner. The name of the perception module is Human Action Perception (HAP) module.
Disclaimer: the deliverable D5.1 must be approved by European Commission.
