Compared to robots, human pathways are individually changeable. Particularly the human-robot-collaboration (HRC) with heavy-duty robots carry high risk potentials. To ensure safety and efficiency, the human variance in pathways should be determined in the planning of HRC. Hence this paper presents a method to investigate human pathway variations in a real study. In systematically selected tasks, human pathways are examined for 100 participants in manual and human-robot collaboration (HRC) scenarios. As a result, the variations of pathways are presented depending on various features: in nearly all cases the variance of women’s walking pathways is smaller than that of men.
