Abstract
A study was conducted to develop a systematic procedure and guidelines for designing a robotic system, to construct a physical robotic system safety model according to the developed procedure, and to develop an intelligent software control system for monitoring the safety of the robotic system. In Phase-I of the study a systematic procedure and guidelines were developed for designing a robotic safety system. In Phase-II a physical robotic safety cell model was constructed. In Phase-III an intelligent software control system was developed for monitoring the robotic system. Several pieces of information were identified as being useful to the robotic system designed and user including analysis of previous accidents involving robots; an understanding of the planning, installation, and operation stages of the robot; the dangers, causes, effects and corrective measures for each task in a certain stage of robot use; a knowledge of available machine guarding techniques; and an understanding of how the individual robot will be integrated with other equipment on the job. The authors conclude that no component (human operator, robot, robot controller, environment, or operational process) can be dealt with separately in a robotic system and still effectively prevent robot related accidents.
