Improved inspection of welding seams

Smooth collaboration between humans and robots

Research News /

Robots are being deployed in more and more situations, many of which involve collaboration between humans and robots – for example relieving humans of onerous tasks in the workplace. The challenges are how to integrate the robot into the working environment and how to operate it. In a joint project with Volkswagen AG the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI, will demonstrate the advantages that the use of human-robot collaboration (HRC) can bring to the inspection of welding seams in the automotive industry.
