Abstract

The challenge of tasks allocation between human and robot is a known problem for industrial application of collaborative robots in assembly. This paper aims to describe a framework for a dynamic task distribution based on physical properties of the components, tasks characterization and collaborative workspace. The developed tasks-distribution is achieved through a set of assembly attributes with various scores for contrasting cycle times, adaptability and safety. The work is demonstrated with an industrial case of human-robot collaborative assembly process.
