How can robots effectively assist humans in the packaging industry, when it comes to handling large components, such as a LCD television? This is the question that scientists and industry partners of the research project “CustomPacker” [1] are seeking to answer. The aims of the project are to free the human worker of tedious, unchallenging work, whilst simultaneously reducing packaging costs. Area of Conference Topic: Robotics in Production / Industrial Robots Keywords: Safe human-robot cooperation / cooperating robots
