Improved Collaboration with Industrial Robots

Adjutant: A Framework for Cooperative Behaviors with Industrial Robots

This project deals the problems associated with incorporating robotic systems into small lot manufacturing entities (SMEs).  We aim to simplify integration and improve efficiency of collaborative industrial robot systems by better understanding the trade off between a users effort to teach that robot assistive actions, and the user performing those actions themselves.
