Follow-up tests to the BGHM Study "Collaborative Robots: Determination of Pain Thresholds at the Human-Machine Interface"

Project No. FF-FP 0411

Status:

ongoing

Aims:

Objective 1: Methodically compiling pain thresholds of hitherto untested body areas and contact situations.

Objective 2: Reduction of the statistical variances that is influencing the quality of the currently available experimental data which is forming the basis of pain thresholds for impacts

Activities/Methods:

Cluster analysis: Analyzing experimental data of preceding studies or literature sources and making use of biomechanical similarities between tested and untested body areas.

Study with live test subjects: Continuing compiling dynamic pain thresholds in experiments with another twenty subjects following the same specifications and methods as the preceding study contracted by BGHM.
