Industrial human-robot collaborative systems must be validated thoroughly with regard to safety. Due to the complexity of robot systems, safety ﬂaws often stay hidden, especially at early design stages, when a physical implementation is not yet available for testing. Simulation-based testing is a possible way to identify hazards in an early stage.
The use of robots and robotics is becoming more common across many industries. As these devices become more common and their use grows, manufacturers must understand the hazards they present, regulatory requirements, and testing options.
