INDUSTRIAL ROBOTS have long been a staple of the manufacturing floor. However, these powerful and large pieces of machinery required advanced external safety measures to protect their human coworkers. Now, the next wave of robotics is in collaborative robots. The cobot is one that is designed to work in the same environment as humans do with safety measures built-in. The cobot is the future of robotics, enabling a higher level of robot-human manufacturing relationship.
