Requirements for safe human-robot-collaborations

It is impossible to imagine our production applications without robot systems. They ensure productivity, quality and perform heavy and dangerous tasks. Since industrial robotic systems are assessed with high risk, protection concepts are usually designed in such a way that robots and humans work separately from each other in terms of location and/or time.

Tactile Robots: What the assembly in the factory of the future looks like

Nowadays, robots produce car bodies almost without human intervention. However, a lot of manual work is still required to assemble the interior. There are several hurdles to overcome for the assembly of plastic parts with robots: special sensor technology, complex programming and safety at work in human-robot collaboration. EDAG PS does a lot of research in this direction in order to be able to use tactile robots in assembly.
