The automation of production lines in industrial scenarios implies solving different problems such as the flexibility to deploy robotic solutions to different production lines; usability to allow non-robotics expert users to teach robots different tasks; and safety to enable operators to physically interact with robots without the need of fences. In this paper, we present a system that integrates three novel technologies to address the above mentioned problems. We use an auto-calibrated multi-modal robot skin, a general robot control framework to generate dynamic behaviors fusing multiple sensor signals, and an intuitive and fast teaching by demonstration method based on semantic reasoning.
