The Franka Emika collaborative robot (cobot) is part of a new generation of  robotic tools that are both sensitive and versatile. Franka Emika cobot was created specifically for use in the computer, communication, and consumer electronics (3C) industries. It is, nevertheless, capable of automating a variety of jobs within any given industry, rescuing manufacturing workers from tedious, repetitive, and possibly dangerous tasks.

As seen in the video, the Franka Emika cobot is being tested for compliance. The Franka Emika Robot features seven degrees of freedom (DoF) and seven axes of motion, which allows the cobot to move as quickly as a human hand. It also has a human touch sensibility, making it a completely intelligent interactive solution that is simple to set up and use. The cobot is incredibly accurate when it comes to contact recognition, interpretation, and reaction. The precise, agile, and light-weight soft robot control gives the cobot the ability to follow shapes. These features make it safe to operate as it stops swiftly in the event of a collision.

The Franka Emika cobot's compliance feature automatically compensates for component positioning mistakes, fixture misalignments, and part tolerance variations. Compliance devices are used in automated assembly, loading and unloading machines, bin picking, robotic finishing, and many more. The 7 DOF arm is sensitive and agile, with torque sensors at each joint, allowing for configurable stiffness and compliance as well as advanced torque control. It has a payload of 3 kg, a reach of 855 mm, and 94.5 percent area coverage.

The compliance test demonstrates the cobot's capacity to work closely with people in a shared environment. The Franka Emika cobot can detect a 0.05N collision, guaranteeing that people and equipment are safe around it.
