Robot Giving a Hand to Make... a Robot Hand!

Bringing humans and robots together in the same working environment is a big research and development theme across the global robotics community. The promise of robots that are safe for humans will shift the paradigm about industrial robots from "programmable machines autonomously executing structured tasks" to "collaborative devices working with humans to complete loosely structured tasks". Instead of being considered like machinery, these new robots will be seen as a new generation of intelligent co-workers with whom human operators can intuitively interact to be more productive. Industrial platforms are not mature enough yet for extensive deployment, but the video below gives a preview of how a robot and an operator could collaborate to do fine assembly, for example at a robotic hand manufacturer, SME.
