Talk title:
How to improve the performance in collaborative robotics while fulfilling to safety regulations

The increasing interest towards pHRI has led to new safety standards, which directly address collaboration scenarios. In particular, in ISO/TS 15066 specific safety requirements for collaborative industrial robotic systems have been introduced. Current approaches for implementing the ISO/TS 15066 guidelines lead to a conservative behavior of the robot and, consequently, to poor performance of the collaborative cell. In this talk, approaches for maximizing the performance of a robot acting in a collaborative cell while satisfying the ISO/TS 15066 regulations will be discussed.

Federica Ferraguti received the M.Sc. degree in Industrial and Management Engineering and the Ph.D. in Industrial Innovation Engineering from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy, in 2011 and 2015. She has been visiting researcher at the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab at ETH Zurich, Switzerland in 2013. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, in the Automation, Robotics and System Control Lab (ARSControl). In 2017 she received the “Fabrizio Flacco Young Author Best Paper Award” from the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society – Italian Chapter. Her research deals with collaborative robotics and safety-related issues, surgical robotics, telerobotics, physical human-robot interaction and control of robotic systems
