The direct cooperation of humans and machines reaches an entirely new quality using human-robot interaction. In the future, employees in production processes will be able to determine the motion sequences of robots, which shall assist them in their tasks, in an independent, simple and precise way by applying the multi-modal strategy of interaction created by Fraunhofer IWU. Thus, robots can be programed intuitively via gestures and voice command without requiring any programing skills. Today, using robots in manufacturing still comes along with a high level of expenditure. Robot programers have to define the desired motion sequences using manufacturer-specific programing languages.
