Annie: Assistive Robot Research Platform

The Institute for Factory Operation and Automation, Fraunhofer IFF, from Magdeburg, Germany is actually conducting a lot of research projects on collaborative robots. In fact, it is not a surprise that human-robot collaboration is now part of the industrial world. As often mention by the institute: “Robotics is at a turning point”. With this statement, the research community wants to say that the classic application of industrial robots is evolving towards a collaborative application, where robots and humans can work side-by-side. Robotics researchers are convinced that in the near future, robots will actively assist humans in various tasks, without any protective barriers. One of the important features of these types of robots is their safety systems. The institute is evaluating some of them.
