The application scenario itself is open, as to encourage innovation and creativity with regard to developing novel manufacturing applications involving human‐robot collaboration. However, the feasibility and cost effectiveness of the applications will have to be demonstrated. Further, the safety of the worker will have to be guaranteed through appropriate measures. The applications may involve one‐arm, dual‐arm or multi‐arm setups, where each robotic arm is reconfigurable. Further, the distribution of tasks assigned to the human worker and to robot arms may also be dynamically reconfigured online to account for bottle‐necks, break‐downs, etc.
