Abstract: Intuitive and safe interfaces for robots are challenging issues in robotics. Robo-HUD is a gadget-less interaction concept for contactless operation of industrial systems. We use virtual collision detection based on time-of-flight sensor data, combined with augmented reality and audio feedback, allowing the operators to navigate a virtual menu by “hover and hold” gestures. When incorporated with virtual safety barriers, the collision detection also functions as a safety feature, slowing or stopping the robot if a barrier is breached. Additionally, a user focus recognition module monitors the awareness, enabling the interaction only when intended. Early case studies show that these features present good use-cases for inspection tasks and operation in difficult environments, where contactless operation is needed.
