The white paper, titled "Adaptive Robots and the Future of Industrial Automation," outlines the progress from the first industrial robots of the 1990s, ideal for tasks involving repeated trajectories, to that of the collaborative robots (or "cobot
"), integrated with safety features able to protect humans from hazards in the environment.
The safety features, as well as the benefits over other robots to perform certain light-duty tasks, is driving the adoption of collaborative robots (Cobot
's) across the ROS market.
