Robots are going to play bigger roles in our lives in the future. Many businesses will rely on them to get things done. Humans collaborating with robots does not have to be dangerous. Quipt is one of many solutions to facilitate safe human-robot interaction. It uses wearable markers and a motion capture system to give industrial robots eyes into their environment.
Robots will be able to see and respond to those wearing markers on their hand or other parts of their body. They will be able to follow, mirror, and avoid you while working together. The above video should give you a better idea how this system works.
