Challenges and Opportunities for the Design and Development of Human-Centric Systems Towards Industry 5.0

Manufacturing and Production Industries are currently being reshaped in an attempt to integrate the new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the existing workplaces. This shift has been encapsulated by several initiatives around the world, most commonly known as the "Industry 4.0". Manufacturing and Production systems can be connected, and most importantly can interact with virtual environments, by analyzing data and making decisions based on complex numerical simulation models. However, since the European Commission released its Industry 5.0 Policy in 2021, several research efforts focused on the comparison of Industry 4.0, Industry 5.0 and Society 5.0 as well. The comparison extends to the validity of Industry 5.0. The ongoing Fourth Industrial Revolution is technology-focused. On the other hand, Industry 5.0 (or Society 5.0 with Japanese perspective) is a more value-driven approach, towards the implementation of the available enabling technologies in industry. This new model is based on three interconnected core pillars as follows: human-centricity, sustainability, and resilience. Additionally, in Industry 5.0, the human-centric approach emphasizes that people have the right to decide what happens to them disregarding the fear of coercion or compulsion. It can be convincingly argued that the data generated about humans (including the social existence and the community as a whole) is inextricably linked to the lived personhood of any and every human being in the digital age. As a result, new "digital human/operator rights" are surfacing, and the human-centric paradigm is built on them. As such, Human-Centricity is a new way of thinking about data management and its possibilities in terms of data generation in manufacturing and focuses on key terms such as (self)sovereignty, self-determination, self-governance, autonomy, agency and so on. Therefore, the importance of Industry 5.0 should be further highlighted. In this context, the contribution of this presentation is focused on the transition from Industry 4.0 to Industry 5.0 taking into account the key technologies that can be used to enhance the abilities of the new generation of human operators, also known as Operator 5.0.

The Resilient Operator 5.0" reinforces the human-centric and social sustainability characteristics of "The Operator 4.0” and adds — resilience — to the quest of designing and developing better human and human-machine systems that combine the unique capabilities of humans and machines towards smarter and more resilient manufacturing systems. This presentation aims to provide a vision for the future of work in the emerging Industry 5.0 hallmark and suggests how to use Industry 4.0 technologies to achieve socially sustainable working environments without compromising production objectives.

As the fundamental building blocks of Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence plays a critical role in advancing the state-of-manufacturing. The ability in extracting clues from sensing data to guide the action of assistive infrastructure such as robots is essential to enhancing process control and production planning. This seminar highlights research on machine learning for human-robot collaborative assembly, where machine learning methods for the recognition of current actions and prediction of future actions of human operators during assembly operations are highlighted. This provides prerequisites for human-robot collaborative assembly and the potential of use-inspired basic research in advancing the state of manufacturing.
