Plenty of companies are planning to use collaborative robots to make their workers more productive. The ARMAR-6 robot can not only respond to simple voice commands but can also predict what a worker is doing to respond proactively.
The robot is being tested in Ocado’s automated warehouse. The ARMAR-6 learns through observation to augment the workers’ capabilities, offering them support in tasks that require a certain level of precision. The above video from Ocado shows how this all works.
