Automatica 2018: Four areas where “cobots” fit in Industry

Automatica 2018, the fair where Industry 4.0 takes shape, seems to have clear that the “Factory of the Future” involves collaborative robotics. The so-called “cobots” are based on the fact that they share the same workspace as operators - meaning, they can work safely around (and also with) people, without needing any cage or partition [...]
