Fail-Safe Cobots Power the IIoT

Most industrial robots are not equipped with sensors that allow them to detect the presence of humans and other obstacles, nor control systems that enable them to react if they were to encounter an obstruction, so they must be isolated to confined spaces and very specific functions. New collaborative robots (cobots) integrate the sensing, intelligence, and mobility needed to operate autonomously within open environments and even interact with human counterparts working in close proximity.
