Collaborative robotics (cobots) are robots intended to be operated in direct physical interaction with humans in a shared space. This difference compared to traditional industrial robotics is facilitating a paradigm, changing how robots are being applied to solve problems in a wide variety of industries.

Building upon students’ existing knowledge on robotics and automation, students are introduced to the field of collaborative robotics. Considerations for students include the advantages and limitations of the technology, risks, use cases in different domains, and where cobot technology is heading based on current research trends. In a collaborative studio environment, students learn to write programs for cobots through scripting and through direct physical interaction.
