Advanced Robot Technology for Industry – Chances and Problems
In contrast to conventional industrial robots, sensitve robot systems do not require protective fences for safety reasons since they react to occurring forces. In this way, human-robot-collaboration (HRC) can be realized in principle and ensure the necessary personal safety. This new technology brings robots closer to humans, which in turn requires a number of other technologies and methods to make a production process efficient and profitable. An overview of the wide range of the facets of modern robots used in industry will be presented.
