The purpose of this Whitepaper is to clarify the role that collaborative robots – or “cobots” – play in what has now become known as Industry 4.0.

After reviewing the concepts “Industry 4.0” and “cobot,” we will examine the suitability of cobots for use in Industry 4.0 environments and the role they play in relation to the whole move towards Industry 4.0.

Finally, we will show how the particular nature and capabilities of cobots can shed light on some of the limitations implicit in the Industry 4.0 concept.
