In industrial production, cooperative robots play a complementary role with traditional robots and make traditional industry more intelligent. Thanks to multi-sensor fusion, cooperative robots are more intelligent in man-machine interaction, flexibility and environmental adaptability. At the same time, for small manufacturers, the emergence of collaborative robots reduces their financial pressure on production lines, and ryan guthrie, senior vice president of Toshiba Machinery, has said that in many cases collaborative robots can recover costs within a year.
At the same time, the safety of cooperative robot also needs to be attached great importance to by the industry, and it should be put in the first place to reduce the accident rate. At present, there is no internationally accepted and unified standard to define whether cooperative robots are safe or not, especially in man-machine collaboration, which is one of the highest accident rates at present.
