Better together: human and robot co-workers

More and more processes are being automated and digitised. Self-driving delivery vehicles, such as forklifts, are finding their way into many areas — and companies are reporting potential time and cost savings. However, an interdisciplinary research team from the universities of Göttingen, Duisburg-Essen and Trier has observed that cooperation between humans and machines can work much better than just human or just robot teams alone. The results were published in the International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies.
