Robots-Human Workers Bhai Bhai in Manufacturing

A new study by University of Wisconsin has found that robots may perform better in a collaborative environment where they work along with human operators than as standalone workers. 
Bilge Mutlu, a University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor of computer science, industrial engineering and psychology are designing lower-power robots that can handle a wider range of less-rigidly defined tasks.Previously, powerful robots were made to handle tasks individually in assembly line manufacturing and which separated them from human workers. Such robots can turn out to be dangerous if people get in their way of functioning. 
However, the collaborative robots to be developed with support from NASA, the robots would be controlled by humans with sensor and controls to guide their activity.Even new human users will be able to handle the robots deftly to move two arms and legs, lift and pass objects.Controlled robots can handle a number of processes in aircraft manufacturing and other industries.
