Abstract

Solutions and technologies for cooperation between human and industrial robots are under a thorough research and development. Human-robot cooperation relies on reliable and safe robot position handling and human position awareness. To the both issues there are some solutions in the market already or they are now under development and coming soon to market. Robot manufacturers have presented robot controllers, with integrated additional safety controller. It enables better control over robot position and movements due to software based functions. Robots movement range can be limited by freely shaped virtual zones. New safety functions, which are made possible by safety controllers, are in line with the definitions described in the new ISO 10218-1:2006 standard.
