In this study we evaluated human-robot collaboration models in an integrated human-robot operational system. An integrated work cell which includes a robotic arm working collaboratively with a human worker was specially designed for executing a real-time assembly task. Eighty industrial engineering students aged 22-27 participated in experiments in which timing and sensor based models were compared to an adaptive model developed within this framework. Performance measures included total
