Mental Health promotion of cobot Workers in Industry 4.0

Project description

Studying whether cobots can make workers happier

People-focused robots, also called collaborative robots (cobots), are designed to work with people (not to replace them) to help increase productivity in the manufacturing industry. These robots work with people in a shared workspace. The EU-funded MindBot project will investigate how cobot-based manufacturing workplaces are able to promote workers' mental health. It will define an employment model for persons diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) working in the frame of manufacturing SMEs adopting cobots. The project will take a multidisciplinary approach, considering numerous facets that could impact mental health and intervening on technological, relational and organisational aspects of cobot-based work.
