A generic ontology and recovery protocols for Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) systems

by   Kamil Skarzynski, et al.

Humans are considered as integral components of Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) systems, not only as object (e.g. in health care), but also as operators and service providers in manufacturing. Sophisticated and complex tasks are to be collaboratively executed by devices (robots) and humans. We introduce a generic ontology for HRC systems. Description of humans is a part of the ontology. Critical and hazardous (for humans) situations, as well as corresponding safeguards are defined on the basis of the ontology. The ontology is an extension of the ontology introduced in Skarzynski et al. (2018) arXiv:1709.03300. The architecture of SO-MRS (see arXiv:1709.03300), a software platform for automatic task accomplishment, is extended to HRC systems. Ongoing experiments, carried out in a simulated HRC system, are to verify the ontology and the architecture.
