Adaptive autonomy in worker assistance systems

This project is part of the Forschungskolleg “Design of flexible working environments – human-centered use of Cyber-Physical Systems in industry 4.0” run by the Universities of Paderborn and Bielefeld. We investigate how to develop learning, intelligent assistance systems for industrial workers that adapt their level of assistance and autonomy to the internal state of the worker, and need to make this understood, accepted, and utilized by the user.
