How to understand human-robot interaction in assembly settings?

Scrutinizing human-robot interaction and wearable cognitive load parameters such as pupillometry and GSR in manual and human-robot assembly settings.

We at imec-mict-UGent are setting up experiments for data-collection, pupillometry and GSR analysis, subjective data, video analysis, design and surveys on user acceptability of wearable mental workload monitoring, (brief) wearability research, design of an explanatory mental workload framework, qualitative research on operator acceptability of cobots.
