2cp; 5 hpw, 8 week duration; blended (combination of F2F and online)


Collaborative Robots (cobots) are a relatively new form of robot that can be operated in shared environments with humans. Unlike traditional industrial robots, cobots can be much more agile and flexible in their utilisation due to the reduced safety and infrastructure requirements. This makes Cobots an exciting technology for companies and industries looking to adopt automation. This microcredential introduces cobots, including technical concepts, safety and ethical considerations, and hands-on programming.
