Collaborative robots have changed how we work. Because they are now working alongside us, and not behind a 6-foot fence, we need to rethink safety on the workfloor.


Then came ISO/TS 15066: the technical specifications on collaborative robots safety. The specifications are meant as an add-on to ISO 10218-1/2. Once they have matured the technical specifications will be included in the ISO standard.

This is all very nice. But what does it mean in the daily life of the factory? How does ISO/TS 15066 change how to organize the shop, and how to think about safety?
