In the future, more and more machines will work hand-in-hand with people in terms of space and function. Particularly in these situations, special attention must be paid to the protection and safety of people.
The physically close cooperation between man and machine requires adapted and reliable occupational safety concepts.
The aim of the KAMeri project is to support employees who already work with robots, for example in assembly. In order to adapt the work processes, the EEG brain currents of the workers are permanently recorded and evaluated.
This is done by means of brain-computer interfaces integrated in protective goggles. For example, the robot involved in the process can automatically slow down the speed or issue recommendations for pause times, e.g. via smartwatches, when the attention of the workers diminishes.
The project consortium of KAMeri consists of research, development and application partners. As a partner in the field of research transfer, the AWS-Institute will contribute its expertise in the fields of recommender systems and platform development.
In concrete terms, this means the development of an assistance system to generate user feedback and recommendations for action as well as the development of a platform for centralized data storage, analysis, control of robot systems and the necessary real-time transmission to end devices.
The project KAMeri is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
