Cobots are collaborative robots, designed to work safely and effectively alongside humans in a variety of settings. In many cases, cobots are used to supplement human workers in tasks that are physically demanding, repetitive, or dangerous. For example, a cobot might assist workers in an assembly line by handling heavy or delicate objects. Cobots are typically equipped with sensors and software that allow them to adapt to their surroundings and work cooperatively with humans. For example, some cobots are equipped with force-sensing technology that allows them to apply just the right amount of force when working with humans, making them less likely to injure their collaborators.
Some of the emerging trends in Cobots include the development of more user-friendly interfaces, the integration of Cobots into existing production lines, and the use of Cobots for tasks such as quality control and inspection.
