About Collaborative Robots
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. The sector is so fast moving that it often creates uncertainty for end-users – and prospective end-users – of collaborative robotics systems.
Much Needed Clarity
Collaborative Robotics Week, a focused, integrated series of presentations delivered by brightest minds from the leading collaborative robotics and automation companies from around the world, as well firms currently using cobots, will deliver much needed clarity, providing a snapshot of the current state of the collaborative robotics sector, including emerging capabilities, powerful enabling technologies, as well as new business models enabled by collaborative robots. Insights into what the future holds will also be provided. New collaborative robotics approaches for common industrial tasks such as machine tending, bin picking and palletizing / depalletizing will be analyzed, and new ways collaborative robots are adding value in various industries will be highlighted.
