Creating Dynamic Collaborative Zones Where Humans and Robots Can Work Together
Currently, industrial robots are caged off from human workers in manufacturing environments, marking binary safe and unsafe zones. This webinar will discuss the creation of dynamic collaborative zones where industrial robots and humans work together. It will focus on the five main industrial application categories to showcase how humans can work alongside robots to increase productivity and cycle times by sharing responsibilities. Robots can handle heavy lifting and precise, repeatable motions, while humans can use their dexterity and judgment to make minor process adjustments necessary for success.
During this webinar, we will discuss the following key takeaways:
- A different outlook on the separation of robots and humans in an industrial environment.
- Real-life manufacturing applications with capabilities beyond those of cobots.
- The importance of human-machine interaction: How robots can benefit from human interaction and vice versa.
- How to reduce downtime during maintenance by resetting safety area clearance automatically with consistent monitoring.
