Abstract

Lots of industrial plants are regularly inspected for irregularities such as gas leaks. This is done by plant personnel via visual, aural, olfactory, and gas detector based search. Mobile robots equipped with several sensors are an opportunity to free personnel from this monotone repetitive task. A task- and user-centered design approach was chosen to assure an efficient and effective human-robot interaction and to enhance the acceptance of the developed human-machine system. In the first step, current practices were surveyed and analyzed. Then, system requirements were derived and technically realized, to iteratively evaluate their usability. This article illustrates this design approach by exemplarily presenting requirements and their realization.
