AbstractThe main idea of Interactive Manual Assembly Operations for the Human-Centered Workplaces of the Future (INTERACT) project is to utilize workers’ knowledge on executing manual assembly tasks and include it in the digital tools used to support manufacturing and continuous improvement of human-centered, flexible assembly workplaces. One of the main assumptions of the project is the most accurate and automated simulation, recording and gathering data about operations performed by employees during manual assembly verification workshops. The problem could be approached by design of shop-floor sensing architecture and application of a set of various sensors, including optical sensors and MEMS. However, some manual assembly operations cannot be accurately described by means of optical sensors and MEMS. Generally, the problem is the accurate identification and location of small objects that are close to each other. One example is mounting a screw in a thread during tail light assembly of a car. This is the case, when threads are in close proximity of each other. Information if a screw was mounted in a proper thread is expected. Therefore, in order to avoid manual supplementation of this kind of data, light-responsive RFID tags are proposed to be applied. Authors described light-responsive RFID idea and the concept of its application in manual assembly verification workshops. First experiments of exemplary application of the concept for screwing operations performed with cordless angle screwdriver are presented. Issues related to the integration of hardware and software components of light-responsive RFID with other hardware and software components are discussed.
