A digital twin system that could enhance collaborative human-robot product assembly

Credit: Zhang et al. (Robotics and Computer-Integated Manufacturing)

Robotics systems have already been introduced in numerous real-world settings, including some industrial and manufacturing facilities. In these facilities, robots can assist human assembly line and warehouse workers, assembling some parts of products with high precision and then handing them to human agents tasked with performing additional actions.

In recent years, roboticists and computer scientists have been trying to develop increasingly advanced systems that could enhance these interactions between robots and humans in industrial settings. Some proposed solutions rely on so-called ‘digital twin’ systems, virtual models designed to accurately reproduce a physical …
