Title
(EN) SYSTEM FOR SAFETY PROTECTION OF HUMAN BEINGS AGAINST HAZARDOUS INCIDENTS WITH ROBOTS
(FR) SYSTÈME DE PROTECTION DE LA SÉCURITÉ DE PERSONNES VIS-À-VIS D’INCIDENTS DANGEREUX IMPLIQUANT DES ROBOTS
Abstract
(EN)
The invention refers to a system and a method for safety protection of human beings against hazardous incidents with robots in operation by means of a monitoring means comprising sensor means which are able to receive and measure signals caused by the respective human being who might be in a dangerous situation within or near the working range of the robot, where the acoustical and/or optical sensors are located close around the robot within or near its working range, where said monitoring means comprises a processing means being linked to the acoustical and/or optical sensors, and where said processing means evaluates the received signals as for the source in order to trigger the robot controller to execute a control action leading to a safe situation.
(FR)
Système et procédé de protection de la sécurité de personnes vis-à-vis d’incidents dangereux impliquant des robots en service, grâce à un moyen de surveillance continue comprenant des moyens capteurs susceptibles de recevoir et de mesurer des signaux produits par une personne potentiellement en danger se trouvant à portée ou sensiblement à portée d’un robot, les moyens capteurs comprenant des capteurs acoustiques et/ou optiques installés autour du robot à portée ou sensiblement à portée de celui-ci, le moyen de surveillance continue comprenant un moyen de traitement relié aux capteurs acoustiques et/ou optiques, et le moyen de traitement évaluant les signaux reçus pour en déterminer la source afin de déclencher l’exécution par un module de commande de robot d’une action de commande conduisant à une situation sans danger.
