As Industry 4.0 evolves, the use of more sophisticated robots, as well as advanced automation and control systems within industrial applications has become more common as companies continue their pursuit to increase efficiency and profitability. The advancement of automated technology has helped drive the development of collaborative robots. Collaborative robots, or cobots, are robots that can work alongside or with humans. These cobots are intended to interact with and assist workers as opposed to being standalone automated equipment with little to no human interaction. Historically, this limited interaction was due to safety concerns and the fact that humans and robots were not able to work together effectively and efficiently.
