New-generation industrial robots
The particularity - and added value - of cobots is that they can work directly and interactively with humans. While industrial robots are extremely efficient in productivity terms, they completely lack sensitivity and must accordingly be operated in secure, closed, areas as they could otherwise present a risk for humans during operation. Cobots, for their part, can be configured for speed and workload and are sensitive to their environment: whenever they encounter an obstacle they go into sleep mode. They can thus be deployed for collaborative applications at the same time and in the same space as humans, with no danger to them.
