This contribution aims in presenting a projection- and camera-based technology that provides not only the safeguarding of humans but also capabilities for supporting and assisting the human in human-robot cooperative manufacturing processes. The proposed technology establishes dynamically generated safety spaces by directly projecting them into the shared workspace thus separating human and robot. Besides the safety aspect the proposed “speed and separation monitoring”- technology also allows the visualization of arbitrary information as well as interaction functionalities with the robot, process or system. This technology and its beneficial functionalities will be presented on basis of an industrial demonstrator featuring a screwing application.
