In human-robot interactions with collaborative robots (cobots), the force, speed, pressure and motion path of the robot must be limited to reduce the risk of robot applications.

Integrators of cobots must comply with the limit values for force and pressure in accordance with ISO/TS 15066 or RIA TR R15.606. During machine design, it is therefore necessary to validate and document that the force and pressure of a possible collision of a robot with a person would not exceeded the recommended limit values.

SICK offers a service for measuring the force and pressure at the hazardous point defined in the risk assessment. In doing so, compliance with the safety parameters for force and pressure set in the robot control is examined and verified.
