This project will design and deploy Programmable Light Curtains (PLC) that enable safe operation of potentially hazardous machines in a space involving humans, at a price point that is 50 to 100 times cheaper than current options. We will focus on automatic design and placement of PLCs and evaluate their effectiveness in testbeds currently deployed at Mill-19.
