Collaborative robotics is an emerging force in today’s manufacturing and automation world. They are streamlining production by safely handling hazardous or bulky materials and operating 24/7. In addition to a softer, rounded exterior and slower, calculated movements, cobots incorporate additional technology that increases their reliability and safety.
Improving Security & Performance
Working alongside humans, cobots are designed to:
- Perform tasks with reduced speed and strength
- Include designs with hand-guiding technology
- Neutralize collision damage with soft, rounded edges
- Reduce error rate
Because humans’ movements are not as predictable as the patterns of a robot, sensing technology ensures safe interactions between employees, cobots, and other equipment.
Machine-learning capable software anticipates human behavior, detects proximate objects, and averts potentially dangerous situations.
As technology rapidly continues to advance, more options become available for more applications.
