Robotics and Sensors — One of the big breakthroughs the factory of the future offers is greater collaboration between man and machine. Robots can now work alongside humans on the factory floor via intelligent sensors, advanced safety parameters, and greater dexterity to pick, place, sort, and load faster. These strides in robotics achieved in harmony with human counterparts have led to swifter technical adjustments in format and speed. By injecting adaptive control and self-learning capabilities into the factory, product types can be switched in an instant and technical adjustments are possible without having to halt production.
