Safety Components

What is an emergency stop?

E-stop features, locations and best practices in industrial safety
The automated order-fulfillment demonstration highlights collaborative robots (cobots) using sensors to scan QR codes for correct order picking, transferring and shelving of consumer items varying in sizes and shapes. The system is an example of cobots, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and vision sensors working together in a highly flexible autonomous solution that can be scaled up or down.
