‘Multiverse Barrier Free’: A new era of human-machine interaction for manufacturing

In recent years, countries are being faced with challenges such as a maturing workforce or aging machines and infrastructure. Also, productivity declines can be expected in an older population due to diminishing physical and reactive capabilities. Digital technologies like Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and robotics may help solve these social challenges. However, applying these technologies also impacts social transformation, since the technologies perform primarily routine cognitive tasks that were previously the domain of humans.
Given these problems, Hitachi has proposed the concept of ‘Multiverse Barrier Free’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKjN3PPbUhk&t=2s). It is a mechanism to promote sustainable growth rather than over-supporting one another, and it takes advantage of the individual characteristics of a diverse set of humans and machines. In this concept, a mediation is created for interactions between humans, humans and machines, and machines with three steps: measuring, harmonizing, and sustainable growth.
