The usefulness of traditional industrial robots, noted for performing repetitive tasks with speed, strength, and precision, has been limited by their inability to work directly with humans. The introduction of collaborative robots, robotic systems that can work safely in close approximation with human co-workers, has increased task flexibility and expanded the number and types of applications for which robots can be used.
Both large, existing robotics suppliers, as well as new, smaller firms, have rapidly introduced innovative collaborative robotics technologies into the market, and more are on their way. Unfortunately, this fast-moving sector makes for uncertainty for both end-users and developers of collaborative systems. This webinar will act to increase clarity, providing a snapshot of the current state of the collaborative robotics sector, including emerging capabilities, new applications and powerful enabling technologies, as well as a description of what to expect in the future.
Attendees of this webinar will learn:
- A New Definition for Collaborative Robotics
- Changing Demand Drivers
- Representative Products
- New Enablers
- Novel Applications and Application Packages
- Functional Gaps and Opportunities
