New Project Granted

September 14, 2021

Development and monitoring of safe human-machine interaction systems in medical robotics tasks


The main objective of the project is to create a physical and software tool that allows to measure objectively all those physical and spatial interactions of the robotic systems developed or used by the research group. On the hardware side, a room monitored by several 3D cameras and controlled lighting will be designed and implemented. The information from these cameras will be collected in a computer that will process the data from the cameras. The software part of this project contemplates the analysis of these images to provide the evaluation metrics of the interaction tasks between human and machine and also to provide the data necessary for the monitoring of the security of these systems. Among the tasks necessary for this monitoring are the creation of occupancy maps, the estimation of a robust pose of the users, the application of machine Learning / Deep Learning methods to create models that allow us to generate robust metrics, etc.

This project, granted by University of Alicante (ref. GRE20-18-A) will be developed from 14/9/2021 to 15/09/2022.
