Periodic Reporting for period 1 - COROMA (Cognitively enhanced robot for flexible manufacturing of metal and composite parts) Result description Safety requirements: most of industrial robots operate in segregated environments, away from human workers. ?
Occupational safety and health Taxon title Occupational safety and health Taxon description Occupational safety and health (OSH), also commonly referred to as occupational health and safety (OHS), occupational health or workplace health and safety (WHS), is a multidisciplinary field concerned
Lessons learned Comments There is a need of standards (safety/ risk assessment) for mobile robots in industrial environments.
COROMA robotic system carries out operations potentially dangerous for human health:
- repetitive tasks,
- tasks in difficult-to-reach areas of big workpieces,
- long-last machining operations on unhealthy materials
On the other hand, safety fuctionality (while navigating or working near an operators) allows a non risky interation with humans.
