Collaborative robots were pioneered for businesses that had been left behind by traditional robotics. Almost 20 years later, cobots have become the fastest-growing segment of the robotics industry, driven by users who keep finding more areas of production for cobots to add value. Universal Robots even manages an ecosystem of over 400 pre-integrated products designed to put cobots to work across this ever-growing range of tasks and processes. The team overseeing this UR+ ecosystem is obsessed with finding the future of cobots: so what do they see cobots doing in the next 24 to 36 months?

Join Mike DeGrace, Ecosystem Success Manager, as he shares the most exciting new technologies and partnerships in the UR+ ecosystem and explores the emerging cobot use cases he sees in the market.
