In the process of industrial automatization, collaborative robots are becoming an increasingly important tool in a wide range of industries. The robot assists humans in strenuous and repetitive tasks, in order to increase the productivity and well-being of the worker. The concept presented in this paper focuses on a flexible assistance function of a robot for multiple workstations simultaneously and incorporates different human-machine-interaction approaches. Therefore, an assembly table (Figure 2) with the possibility to study different concepts for one robot at the same time is designed and constructed. Aspects like ergonomics and safety are considered in the design. Additionally, a standardized data format that enables users and developers to control the robot through peripheral devices is created. As an example, gesture and voice control are discussed and evaluated.
