RHuMAn (Rapid Human-Manipulability Assessment): A tool for collaborative AI applications that allows the computation of a human comfort quality index distribution in the workspace. RHuMAn draws upon extensive offline analysis of human biomechanics capabilities with ergonomics assessment from industrial-standard directives to produce an efficient online comfort-quality assessment that can be quickly tailored to specific tasks and purposes.
A typical usage of RHuMAn is to analyze motion performance and to design physical human-robot collaborative planners that take human-informed features into account. A simple example is also provided to introduce users on the usage of the tool.
More information: The aims of RHuMAn is to provide an easy-to-use platform that integrates kinematics, muscular-activity assessment and ergonomy-based metrics to non-experts. To this aim, RHuMAn simplifies biomechanics and ergonomics analysis making it straightforward for users from different backgrounds. The tool also provides a database of biomechanics parameters extracted from OpenSim and a tool that enables anyone to extract different parameters (for a different model and anthropometry features).
The rHuMAn (Rapid Human-Manipulability Assessment) tool provides
a human kinematics model according to biomechanics literature;
tools to analyze upper-limb muscular activity from task-space forces and accelerations;
assessment of ergonomics according to postural rapid techniques (e.g., RULA);
a dataset with biomechanics parameters for the upper-limb (e.g., muscle-length, muscle maximum isometric force, moment-arm between muscles and joints);
a framework to integrate ergonomics and muscular-based metrics into manipulability distributions.
rHuMAn is a library that facilitates the use and development of human manipulation performance metrics in terms of biomechanics and ergonomy-based metrics. Its aim is to help the AI and robotics communities to design human-aware tools and algorithms. Notice however that safety and trustworthy AI should be guaranteed by the user and designer.
