    Can artificial intelligence (AI) in robot systems manage the functional safety parts?

    Robots and AI systems have become an integral part of industrial manufacturing sites. To ensure the safety of workers while using robots, a detailed risk assessment is necessary. This assessment is carried out from the perspective of functional safety, which examines the five main elements employed by robots to determine autonomous control actions: environment recognition, action planning, trajectory generation, motion control, and measurement.
