PolyU students’ robot project shines in major technology competitions
A PolyU student research team has won a number of local and international Information and Communications Technology (ICT) awards for their work to improve collaboration between people and robots.
Mutual Cognitive Human-Robot Collaborative Manufacturing System
Hong Kong ICT Awards 2022 – Student Innovation Award
The 8th China International College Students’ “Internet+” Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition
21st Asia Pacific Information and Communications Technology Alliance (APICTA) Awards
Under PolyU’s Research Group of AI for Industrial Digital Servitization (RAIDS)
The project aims to improve collaboration between humans and robots in the manufacturing industry through harnessing technologies such as cognitive Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR). The team’s system combines robots' high levels of accuracy, reliability, and repeatability with humans' flexibility and adaptability to optimise productivity for various manufacturing assembly tasks in a shared workspace.
The Judging Panel of the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2022 said: “It is believed that this project has high potential to become a very successful example, realising local R&D in Hong Kong’s industrial transformation, and leading the development of Hong Kong’s Industry 5.0.”
The project emulates the interaction between human operators and robots in an AR environment.
