Cobots

Growth in robots are coming from cobots - collaborative robots that can work alongside humans.

Some examples of cobot use from CBInsights:

  1. Banking. Cobots are being used to count and sort banknotes, which is an area that has long been sensitive to human error.
  2. Auto. They are being used to vacuum out cars at the end of the assembly process.
  3. Retail/hospitality. They are flipping burgers in robotic restaurants and sorting items at distribution centers for large apparel brands.
  4. Cosmetics. Cobots are allowing for more personalized products produced in smaller factories at L’Oreal.
