Tue. June 4| 1:00 PM - 1:55 PM | Booth 170

Track: Centre Stage

As the world of collaborative robots continues to evolve, the safety of their human co-workers is a growing concern. This session will cover strategies and technologies to ensure human employees and cobots can work together safely and productively. We'll look at best practices in manufacturing and packaging for working closely with collaborative robots; sensor developments that allow cobots to be more aware of their surroundings; and standards, including risk assessments, to learn before implementing a collaborative robot installation.
