    Read how consumer products are impacting factory automation like never before. The IoT revolution in the home is outpacing the Industrial IoT revolution, iPads and other tablets are showing up as HMIs, and cell phone camera technology is disrupting the machine vision space. This blog talks about how another living room technology, the DVR, can be leveraged to bridge the experience gap.

    No matter where robotics might take you next, a collaborative R&D approach can help realize what needs to be accomplished.

    Have you noticed how ubiquitous robots are becoming? We’re used to seeing them in manufacturing environments welding car frames, assembling circuit boards or palletizing boxes, yet these days you can even find them pouring drinks on a cruise ship, moving LED screens at a concert or solving a Rubik’s cube.

    We recently worked with two different startup companies with a vision for new product niches. Both lacked the manufacturing process knowledge to bring their ideas to life, and were stymied because there were no established norms to follow or OEMs with standard solutions. Their search led them to us because of our broad industry experience in constructing automation solutions, but more specifically because of our reputation for taking on challenging robotic automation projects. And trust me, neither of these are industries an automation solution provider would traditionally target.

    Manufacturing environments are busy, and avoiding collisions between robots and operators is a high priority. As more manufacturers add robots, there’s increasing interest in ensuring they work safely with each other and with people.
    
    The robotics industry can take pride in its impressive safety record with more than 1.5 million industrial robots operating worldwide, according to Carole Frank, safety director for the Robotic Industries Association (RIA). As robotic applications increase, it’s vital to continue to be vigilant about robotic safety. In fact, risk assessment is now required by new safety regulations: ISO 10218-1 and -2 delineate safety requirements for robots, replacing ANSI/RIA R15.06.

    Many robots are certified by a third-party source or approved by their manufacturers. That’s good, but it’s also important to be sure the robot is safe in its surrounding environment. So take a holistic approach and evaluate each industrial application rather than each device separately.
    
    Basically, you want to identify risk sources, estimate the risk, evaluate it, and determine if the risk is acceptable or needs to be mitigated. A risk tree can help you rate each of these parameters: severity of injury, frequency of exposure to hazard, and the possibility of avoiding a hazard. If you’re unfamiliar with the detailed, iterative process of a risk assessment, a systems integrator can provide this service.
