Abstract: Human-Robot Collaboration is increasingly considered in manufacturing to better combine the strengths of humans and robots. Establishing this human-robot collaboration may require multi-modal interaction; input to and output from the robot can both use multiple channels in sequence or in parallel. Designing effective interaction requires the expertise from different domains, possibly originating from people with different backgrounds. In our work we explore how composite events — hierarchical composition of events — can be used in a way that eases the communication within a multi-disciplinary team. In this paper, we present how the concept of composite events can be used to create different layers of abstraction that can be used to ease prototyping and discussion of human-robot collaboration with stakeholders through a supporting tool called Hasselt UIMS. At the lower level(s) of abstraction, the composite events can be mapped to the message-based communication as implemented in the Robotic Operating System (ROS), which is used to program collaborative robots, such as the Baxter robot from Rethink Robotics.
