Abstract
(EN)

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a robot safety system configured so that a user and robot work in cooperation by removing a physical fence surrounding an area where the robot works.

SOLUTION: A robot safety system (10) comprises: a distance determining portion (43) which determines a distance between a robot (11) and each of a plurality of users (100, A-E); a dangerous distance setting portion (44) that sets a dangerous distance for each user on the basis of at least either one of personal information that each user has individually and environment information to be set according to an installation environment for the robot; a wearable-type monitor which each user can wear individually and can display information in the sight of each user; and a control portion (41) that controls displayed contents by the wearable-type monitor. The control portion, when the distance between the robot and the user is below the dangerous distance, makes the wearable-type monitor which each user wears to display the fact that the distance between the robot and the user is below the dangerous distance.

【課題】ロボットの作業領域を囲う物理的な柵を排除して人とロボットとが協働するシステムにおいて、ユーザの安全を確保する。
【解決手段】ロボット安全システム(10)は、ロボット(11)と複数のユーザ(100、A〜E)のそれぞれとの距離を取得する距離取得部(43)と、各ユーザが個別に有する個人情報又はロボットの設置環境に応じて設定される環境情報の少なくとも一方に基づいて各ユーザの危険距離を設定する危険距離設定部(44)と、各ユーザの個々に装着され各ユーザの視界内に情報を表示可能な装着型モニタと、装着型モニタに対する表示内容を制御する制御部(41)と、を備える。制御部は、ロボットとユーザとの距離が危険距離以下となった場合にロボットとユーザとの距離が危険距離以下となったことを各ユーザが装着している装着型モニタに表示させる。
