What is Human Robotic Interaction?


What is Mechatronics?


How is this possible?


Safety and Sustainability


Already implemented forms of HRI


The Future of HRI


The study of humans and robots
interacting.


Ex:





Maximize Efficiency



Improve quality of living





The
Electromechanical
system of robot


The combination of:


Mechanical
Engineering


Electrical
Engineering


Computer
Engineering


Two components
involved



Control systems



Mechanical systems




System of elements that interact on
mechanical
principles




Deals with the hardware interactions of
mechatronics



Also known as digital control


Defined as interconnections of system
components which will provide desired
system responses as time progresses


CD drives are good examples of control
systems.


Uses
sensors and actuators



used for monitoring the
performance of
machines and processes


detects a given value or
change in values and
convert it from a
physical phenomenon
into a proportionally
electrical equivalent


signal output is then
transformed into a digital
form either for display on
a computer or to be sent
into a controller



Uses sensor input to
accomplish a
desired task


activates process
control equipment
by the use of
electronic signals


ability to convert
electrical energy into
mechanical energy



Electrical Engineering


Electronics, electricity, electromagnetism


Bridges the Gap


Computer Engineering


Software Engineering


Systems Engineering


Solid Communication System




Motion Sensors




Visual Appeal


Engineers have
a duty to ensure the
safety of
humanity.


Prototypes of
products
must go through
safety experiments.


S
ame
rules apply for mechanisms,
designed for direct H.R.I
.


Especially
that have potential to harm a
person or people


A human
-
friendly robot must be controlled
in such a way that humans and robots are
able to safely share a common
workplace


The bandwidth of operation by a human
-
friendly robot must be restricted to allow a
human operator to fully understand and
predict the motion of the robot
.


The collision of a human
-
friendly robot with
a stationary person must not result in any
serious injury to the person.


Robots are now infused with visual sensors,
lasers and ultrasonic hearing giving them
the ability to sense their
surroundings


To increase safety, the user must have full
control of the robots
actions allowing
prediction of the outcomes
of
commands


S
afety cores are implemented to
keep the
robot from performing an unsafe
command


Increasing energy efficiency (Energy star
rated products)




Reducing emissions

Decodes and Processes


HRI technology is still a relatively new and
fast developing field
.


Much is left to be discovered about the
processes behind the human brain and
how to translate those processes into a
robot to ensure effective Human Robot
interaction
.


F
uture
for H.R.I involves complete robot
involvement in our daily
lives in
places
where they can aid humans in performing
tasks quickly and
efficiently.
