An approach to quantify manual expertise with collaborative robotics in mind

Abstract

This article presents a quantification approach of manual expertise. The long term goal is to better understand the notion of manual expertise in order to improve the design of collaborative robots, both from a mechanical and control point of view. Based on the existing literature and through exchanges with highly skilled manual operators, we first propose a definition of manual expertise. Based on this definition, we propose quantitative evaluation criteria for three important dimensions of a manual task completion: safety, discomfort and performance. These criteria are evaluated in experiments relying on a physically realistic mock-up of a wood milling task, a highly demanding task in the carpentry domain. This mock-up includes a 7-DOF collaborative robot used both to reproduce the cutting tool wrenches and provide measurement of the wooden part motion. This experimental setup is used in a training protocol including two groups of 5 novice subjects. This protocol confirms that the proposed approach allows to observe and analyse the handling strategy developed by an operator through training as well as to correlate the type of training to the nature of the developed expertise.
