Welcome to the third article in our series on collaborative robots. We previously examined what cobots are and whether they are safer and easier to use than traditional robots. In this post, we compare cobots to industrial robots in a range of applications and explore the pros and cons to each class.

This is the second post in a series about collaborative robots, also called cobots. Our first post explained that cobots are industrial robots designed to be safer to use near humans and more easily programed to complete simple tasks by a worker who is not a robotics expert. In this second post, we look in detail at cobot safety and ease of use.
Collaborative robot, or cobot, has become something of a buzzword in the automation industry. The popularity of cobots has created an explosion of new models from all the major robot manufacturers as well as many industry newcomers. If you are new to the field, it can be challenging to know which model to pick or even determine if a cobot is the right solution.
