Understanding Cobot Capabilities

This lesson covers the basic knowledge related to cobot capabilities. Understanding this information is crucial to building an efficient robotic process design. In the next video, David Rochette, technical trainer at Robotiq, explains the main cobot capabilities that you should take into consideration:

  • Payload
  • Robot motion (reach, kinematics, singularities)
  • Speed and acceleration
  • Safety
  • Accuracy and repeatability

The difference between accuracy and repeatability

Roughly speaking, the repeatability of a robot is defined as its ability to achieve the same task repeatedly. In regard to accuracy, it is the difference (i.e., the degree of error) between the requested task and the result.

Should you want more information about accuracy and repeatability in robotics, refer to the article below.
