A Literature Review on Technologies in Future Small-scale Intelligent Manufacturing Systems
(Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2018-02-05)
Emergence of global markets forces businesses to become more flexible and adaptive to constantly changing demands and environments. In order to do so, enterprises turn towards application of newest technologies in manufacturing in order to make them intelligent. Since Small and Medium Enterprises play the central role in the domain of European manufacturing, the question arises – based on their ...
Collaboration with High-Payload Industrial Robots: Simulation for Safety
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-15)
<p>When operators and industrial robots are sharing the same task, there are multiple factors, which effect if a system is safe for the human operator or not. In general this is solved by introducing Collaborative Robot for cooperation, but what happens when we would extend our already existing production facilities with newer comfort features?</p> <p>In this paper we propose to include industrial ...
Introduction of cyber-physical system in robotized press-brake line for metal industry
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-11)
Bin picking is a typical work, which is easy to automate up to a given complexity of the work-piece dimensions. In case of casted work-pieces, the dimensions are most of the time not accurate enough for an industrial robot to be able to pick it up without additional sensors/intelligence. In this paper we introduce a cyber-physical system, where all sensors, actuators, machines and industrial robot ...
Human-Robot Collaboration: Task Sharing Through Virtual Reality
(Peer reviewed; Book; Chapter, 2018-12-31)
Collaborative Robots provide many possibilities, when it comes to Human-Robot Collaboration. Until now, these approaches are usually custom made, sensor-integrated solutions, where the robot's safety controller ensures the safety of the human worker. These solutions are according to today's rules and standards. We propose to extend these solutions with including Virtual Realty as a sensor and to ...
Overview of modern teaching equipment that supports distant learning
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
Laboratory is a key element of engineering and applied sciences educational systems. With the development of Internet and connecting IT technologies, the appearance of remote laboratories was inevitable. Virtual laboratories are also available; they place the experiment in a simulated environment. However, this writing focuses on remote experiments not virtual ones. From the students’ point ...
