Quanser: Follow Me: Vision-based Cobotics Research with the QArm
In today’s age of optimized automation, collaboration between human operators and their robotic counterparts can improve the precision and efficiency of carrying out a variety of tasks. Collaborative robots, or Cobots, must be designed with key technical features that ensure no harm is caused to a worker when they come in direct contact with the arms.
One technique involves maintaining awareness of the human operator using some form of sensing technology. In this webinar, come find out how you can use the RGB-D camera onboard the QArm manipulator to conduct such research. We will track a desired object of interest and command the QArm to follow it while maintaining safe working boundaries.
