Semi-Autonomous 3rd-Hand Robot


We present the principles, current work and plans for the EU-FP7 Project Semi Autonomous 3rd-Hand Robot. In this project, we pursue a breakthrough inflexible manufacturing by developing a symbiotic robot assistant that acts as a third hand of a human worker. It will be straight forward to instruct even by untrained workers and allow for efficient knowledge transfer between tasks. We demonstrate its efficiency in the collaborative assembly of furniture.
