Collaborative Robotic Arm
In the 1960’s robotic arms first became mass-produced for factory automation and were caged off for safety concerns. Decades later, collaborative robotic arms use a variety of techniques to safely work alongside humans. For most of the current collaborative arms, speed is limited so that the force of an impact can be controlled. With advancements to vision systems, there are ways to use predictive software that can safely stop in time from having a collision without sacrificing speed. In future years, we hope to put a cobot on an AMR to perform machine tending.
