Past Projects
Intelligent Monitoring of Assembly Operations (IMAO)
Our goal is to allow people and intelligent and dexterous machines to work together safely as partners in assembly operations performed within industrial workcells. To ensure the safety of people working amidst active robotic devices, we use vision and 3D sensing technologies, such as stereo cameras and flash LIDAR, to detect and track people and other moving objects within the workcell.
The Intelligent Workcell
This project is studying methods for augmenting industrial workcells with sensors and feedback mechanisms to enable workers and robots to operate safely in the same environment.
