WHAT IS IT?
Cobots provide less risk to human safety than traditional robots and are better suited for environments that require adaptability. They offer flexibility for fluctuating work environments that traditional robots can't match. Deployment for a cobot solution is typically less involved than the traditional robot.
collaborative robots continue to attract attention and investment, due to their ease of use, re-deploy ability, and convenience to end-users who struggle to afford more traditional forms of automation.
The most direct benefit of cobots is not in their ability to collaborate with humans,” said Rian Whitton, principal analyst at ABI Research. “Rather, it is in their relative ease of use, improved interface, and the ability of end-users to redeploy them for different tasks.”
