Collaborative Robots (cobots) Safety White Paper
Collaborative Robots (cobots) are no different from other industrial robots — all of these robots have some inherent danger — and what does this mean for safeguarding.

Untangling misconceptions and assumptions surrounding risk mitigation
The risks to workers from industrial robots are readily apparent — if a large robot is moving heavy payloads at high speeds, everyone nearby will understand the risks to their health and safety. Consequently, few individuals question the need to isolate industrial robots from human contact during operation.
Collaborative robots (cobots), on the other hand, are designed to function alongside workers thanks to built-in safety features. However, this does not mean they are fully safe. This white paper discusses the inherent danger of cobots and what it means for safeguarding measures.
