Robotics application to hold the largest market share for machine safety

The robotics segment held the largest size of the market in 2020. Machine safety functions such as controlling, limiting, and positioning are indispensable to automated robotic processes. With technological advancements in the field, new collaborative robots have been introduced; due to this, safety regulations for robots are being rewritten with new specifications. The ISO/TS 15066 specification outlines guidelines covering collaborative model use within 4 main areas—safety-monitored stops, hand-guiding, speed and separation monitoring, and power and force limiting robotics products.
