Safety first for the ro­bot that does no harm

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

YUMI ro­bot’s padded arms and pro­gram­ming to shut down on hu­man con­tact makes him one of the in­dus­try’s first robots to work in safe col­lab­o­ra­tion with his col­leagues. The Swiss-made ro­bot ar­rived in the ABB plant in the Dubai In­dus­trial Area yes­ter­day and the com­pany show­cased how it is de­signed to lighten as­sem­bly work­loads in man­u­fac­tur­ing plants. YUMI is al­ready used in fac­to­ries in Europe and the Far East to as­sem­ble elec­tri­cal and con­sumer prod­ucts. The ro­bot’s de­but in Dubai was to show how ro­bot­ics can be of ben­e­fit to an area not known for man­u­fac­tur­ing.
