Collaborative Robot Systems and Safety

Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET

One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

A new generation of robots are designed to not only provide more efficiency and great productivity in manufacturing, but they also are designed to work next to human workers. That requires an even greater attention to robotics safety, but it also requires more attention to human safety issues.

Join Carole Franklin, Director of Standards Development for the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), to learn about safety and collaborative robot systems. Learn about the safety standard documents for safety of industrial robots and robot systems, including collaborative robotics. 


Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the four modes of collaborative operation
  • Identify the crucial difference between a collaborative robot and a collaborative robot system
  • Learn about the importance of conducting a thorough risk assessment before you begin operations with your collaborative robot.

Presenter: Carole Franklin, Director of Standards Development for the Robotic Industry Association (RIA)
