KUKA’s robotic solutions are quite legendary. The company has recently showcased a robotic airbag system on its channel that enables humans and robots to collaborate together on tasks in a safer fashion. The end-of-arm airbag inflates around both tools and pieces, so humans are not exposed to sharp objects.

The system has pressure sensors to stop bag inflation when obstruction is detected. When the airbag collides against something, the robot stops moving. The airbag state is always known by the robot. The idea was a KUKA Innovation Award 2017 finalist.
