3 Best Collaborative Robot Applications

When bathing in a world where robots are a normal part of everyday life, I usually have a reality check when I am meeting customers or doing demos. The thing that I hear the most is: ''What can I do with this robot ?'' It is then that I realize that the applications that can be done by robots are not well understood by most of the people that are looking for a robot. They want robots to automate tasks, but they don't always know exactly what task. So here are some of the best applications that can be done by a collaborative robot (in my own opinion).
