Brainwaves driven human-robot collaborative assembly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper introduces an approach to controlling an industrial robot using human brainwaves as a means of communication. The developed approach starts by establishing a set of training sessions where an operator is enquired to think about a set of defined commands for the robot and record the brain activities accordingly. The results of the training sessions are then used on the shop floor to translate the brain activities to a set of robot control commands. An industrial case study is carried out to assist the operator in coordinating a collaborative assembly task of a car engine manifold.
