Shared Autonomous System for Robot-Assisted Sewing Public

The athletic industries in the United States produce apparel and equipment that contribute to the $60.4 billion sports market in North America. However, the processes to produce these goods are inefficient, with over 1% of products defective. They also put factory workers in potentially uncomfortable environments. A shared autonomous robot-assisted sewing system is proposed to mitigate these issues. The system incorporates a computer vision subsystem to identify the sewing path and location of fabric, motion planning algorithms to optimize sewing trajectories, and intuitive input devices that allow a user to teleoperate the robot while sewing. This system has the potential to increase sewing efficiency and decrease the risk posed to workers.
