You don't usually see robots running in the middle of a trade-show floor without
some sort of physical guarding to protect the innocent passerby from a robotic
beat down. But here at the Assembly Technology Expo, Pilz demonstrated it's
"Safety Eye" system, which uses a 3D vision system to create a protective
barrier around the robot. When a person enters the system's outer protective
zone, the robot slows down. Get closer and enter the inner zone, and the robot
stops entirely. No guarding required.
