To make it less intimidating, robot manufacturers are taking a step back from their large, industrial robot focus and catering to a need for smaller, self-contained robots that can work side-by-side with people. They’re called collaborative robots, or cobots, and manufacturers are likely to see an influx of them from robot manufacturers in the coming years.
As collaborative robots get more and more attention, various governments have started defining long-term strategies. For example, Germany introduced its “High-Tech Strategy 2020” for Industry 4.0 back in 2006, but some Mediterranean countries haven’t even started planning.
