METHODOLOGY OF REALISING THE DIGITAL TWINS OF EXOSKELETON-CENTRED WORKPLACES
Wearable robotics – Exoskeletons - combining the advantages of both industrial manipulators and human-robot collaboration represents enabling technology for ergonomic optimisation of manufacturing workplaces. The Exoskeletons fuse the flexibility, intelligence and human-centred control of human-robot systems with the high payload, endurance, precision and sensor-based guidance. This paper presents a generic and innovative methodology aiming at develop the Digital Twins of workers wearing Exoskeletons in human centred-workplaces. This methodology is validated by coupling a commercial Exoskeleton to the Digital Humanoid of one of the key providers of digital manufacturing technologies. Several workplace optimisations by employing the developed Digital Twins are performed, as well.
