The development of Cobots makes it necessary to acquire reliable data on the operator’s position during the process.
For example, the Cobot can present the part to the operator in various positions so that the operator can perform work on it.
Computer vision is used to acquire the position of the operator and his progress in the process. We are talking about safety, of course, but also about fluidity of operation. Let’s imagine that the operator has to assemble 3 small parts on one side of the heavy part, held by the Cobot, then 3 on the other side. Once the first 3 parts are in place, the operator just has to remove his hands. The Cobot identifies that the parts are well positioned and turns the heavy part over to present the other side.
