Introduction to Cobots
Collaborative robots are also known as Cobots, they are intended to work cooperatively with people. Their bundling applications are restricted primarily by creative ability. At present they are being used for lightweight operations (like putting items in plate or cases) to substantial obligation applications for example in making pallets.
Market for Collaborative Robots
The Europe Collaborative Robots Market is segmented based on the end-user application into Metal and Machining, Automotive, Food and Beverages, Electronics, Plastic and Polymers, and Others.The global market for collaborative robots was evaluated at USD 110.0 Million in 2015 and is expected to grow to USD 3.3 Billion by 2022, rising rapidly at a CAGR of 60.04% for the next five years. The market driving factors in this case are the application for them in variousmanufacturing processes, for example, in the production of cars, metals, furniture, food items and other edibles, plastic and polymers, etc.
Characteristics of Collaborative Robots
Mostly these robots can work by themselves but sometimes humans need to keep an eye on their work or work with them. For instance, when a specific operation must be performed on a section of a product while it is in the robot's space and the robot is working on it too. The individual can deal with the part and still be in the robot's space. In the event that the human enters the confined territory in the pre-decided security zone, the robot will stop all development automatically. It is to be noticed that the robot is not closed down, but rather on sleep mode for a short time until an all clear is given to it. It is also worth noticing that these sorts of robots are most proficient when individuals work for the most part separated from them, however some might get nearer for a little measure of time.
