The goal of the CHARM project CHARM (Collaborative, Human-focused, Assistive Robotics for Manufacturing) project is to develop a robotic assistant to support and enhace the abilities of human workers in industrial assembly tasks. SPIN and CARIS lab researchers developed the interactions and communications that takes place between the human and the robot, both gestural and physically based.

The projct is a large, integrated effort involving the CARIS lab at UBC, the Laboratoire de Robotique and the Laboratoire de Vision et Systems Numeriques at Laval University, the Artificial Perception Laboratory at McGill University, and General Motors, Canada.
