Abstract

Italian national plan “Industry 4.0” fosters technological innovation in terms of investments and productivity by means of fiscal incentives. Industry 4.0 is an opportunity to develop technologies and assets aimed at achieving advantages such as greater production flexibility, reduced manufacturing lifecycle times and increased competitiveness. In this context, Inail, and in particular Lab 2 of Department of Technological Innovation (DIT), executed research activities on machines and work equipment to analyze new technologies, such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as additive technologies and collaborative robots, from a safety perspective. This paper presents the results of one research project called “Intelligent System for the Safety of Machine Operator” (SISOM), promoted by Inail through a call for bids in collaboration - BRIC 2015 ID 16. This research can be regarded as a first step of analysis of an innovative solution, specifically applied to a machine in the food industry, for the safety of operators.
