Safe physical HRI: Toward a unified treatment of speed and separation monitoring together with power and force limiting [article]

Petr Svarny, Michael Tesar, Jan Kristof Behrens, Matej Hoffmann
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The standards prescribe two regimes: (i) speed and separation monitoring and (ii) power and force limiting, where the former requires reliable estimation of distances between the robot and human body parts  ...  and force limiting is triggered.  ...  We are also indebted to Vasek Hlavac, Valentyn Cihala, Libor Wagner, Vladimir Petrik, Vladimir Smutny, and Pavel Krsek from CIIRC for their kind support in using the KUKA robot.  ...
