Implementation of Human Supporting Production System "Attentive Workbench"


We have proposed “attentive workbench (AWB),” an assembly cell that supports the production activities of human workers. Attentive Workbench is composed of an augmented desk interface and self-moving trays with the Sawyer planar motors. In this paper, 2nd generation prototype of AWB is realized. Practical assembly support by self-moving trays are carried out for the evaluation of the present system.
