Normally I would not post about concept ideas but this one was to good to pass up. Swiss robotics manufactures ABB, show us a new concept robot called FRIDA. FRIDA, which stands for Friendly Robot for Industrial Dual-arm Assembly, is the closest robotic equivalent to a production line worker I have ever seen. The design is based off of research being conducted by the FP7s project ROSETTA. The project is trying to develop robotic systems that can interact safely side-by-side human coworkers.
