7 Types of Industrial Robot Sensors

In the industrial and automation world, machines need sensors to provide them with the required information to execute a proper operation. A lot of sensors can be added to different robots to increase their adaptability. We see a lot of collaborative robots having integrated force torque sensors and cameras in order to have a better perspective on their operations and also to provide the safest workspace. This made us think it would be a good thing to enumerate the different sensors that can be integrated into a robotic cell.
