When robots can decide what to do

The word “cobot” denotes a robot optimised for the collaboration with humans. Traditional industrial robotics guarantees high efficiency and repeatability for mass production but it lacks flexibility to deal with the fast changes in the consumers’ demand. Humans, on the other hand, can face such uncertainties and variability but they are limited by their physical capabilities, in terms of repeatability, physical strength, endurance, speed etc. The human-robot collaboration is a productive balance that catches the benefits from both industrial automation and human work.
