AssistMe 2015-2017

FFG project AssistMe

Human-zentrierte Assistenzrobotik in der Produktion
  • 2-years project, started in 2015
  • involving ACIN, Vienna University of Technology, PROFACTOR GmbH, BMW Motoren Sreyr GmbH, GPN GmbH.
  • Principal investigator and leader of the ACIN group in the project (1 workpackage); 840.000 €

Within the AssistMe project we develop and evaluate during a user-centered multistage process innovative means of interaction for programming and usage of a robot-based assistive system. Central topic is the integration of users in the concept development where the interaction paradigms are defined as well as in the evaluation stage of the developed technology. AssistMe examines the applicability of haptic (force feedback) interaction technology with means of machine vision respectively with methods from the field of spatial augmented reality.
