A-GRAfIC / Co-Sign

The shift towards more collaborative working between humans and robots, as part of Industry 4.0, increases the need for improved robot–human communication. Alongside robust measures to ensure safety and task performance, humans need to gain the confidence and trust in robot co-operators to enable true collaboration. This research investigates how visual communication, such as dynamic signage, can support human–robot co-working. With the primary aims of increased productivity and improved worker wellbeing.
