Often placed behind safety cages, requiring specialist programmers to set their tasks and rarely moved, traditional industrial robots are now increasingly being joined by a new generation of lightweight, agile cobots. Short for collaborative robot, cobots are designed specifically to work safely with, not instead of, human beings.
These new mobile, plug and play robots can collaborate safely with human workers due to the latest sensor and vision technology, and for many applications, no coding skills are required. This new wave of robots is set to make hitherto unaffordable levels of automation, available to the smaller companies that make up 70 per cent of manufacturing worldwide.
Speaking of which!
As if to prove there is no limit to what AI, sensors and robots can achieve – watch two robots build an IKEA chair without losing a crucial screw, falling out, or having a cup of tea!
