Collaborative robots are the most popular type of robots in recent years. According to public data, the size of China's collaborative robot market was only 126 million yuan in 2014, and it has increased to 1.3 billion yuan in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate of 59.5. %. The main difference between collaborative robots and industrial robots is that the target markets of the two robots are different. The collaborative robots are not intended to replace industrial robots, but are small, mobile, and rich in application scenarios to fill the gaps in industrial automation. Blank areas, mainly serving non-standard scenes in the industrial field. Moreover, the flexibility of collaborative robots is much stronger than that of industrial robots. It has higher flexibility in the production process and can replace people to complete some tasks that industrial robots cannot do. In addition, the operating threshold of collaborative robots is relatively lower, does not require too long learning costs, programming and operating systems are simpler and more concise, and the safety factor is higher. However, compared with industrial robots, there are still obvious disadvantages in performance. In order to ensure safety, collaborative robots control the force and collision ability, so the running speed is relatively slow, usually only one-third to two-half of traditional robots. First, there are disadvantages in terms of kinetic energy and load.
