About the Course

As robots evolve and increasingly interact with humans, enhancing the safety of personnel working with these “collaborative robots” (cobots) is vital. This course equips you to assess the safety of a collaborative robot workcell and prevent the chances of injury or harm. It imparts industry-endorsed safety standards, technical report recommendations and best practices from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Robotic Industries Association (RIA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Learners are introduced to similarities and differences between traditional robots, cobots and conventional machinery before delving into risk assessments, causes of robot accidents and collaborative applications. Material also includes key design techniques for reducing collision forces and a methodology for safety testing. Main concepts are delivered through videos, demos and hands-on exercises.

This is an interesting, informative course on a very specific subject. It gives a very good overview of the use of robots which interact in the same areas as people. However, the course appears to be orphaned. The forums point out a few dead links and exam question errors, but no one from the course has responded in over a year.

The course was okay.

The instructor was good.

though, i expected to learn some programming for safety parameters which were not at all covered in this course. This is an improvement that i would suggest.

Great learning objectives. But poor delivery. Most of the referred articles are heavily paid articles or unavailable. The resources are not reviewed over years. Speakers are monotonous.

Basic course for developing your knowledge about collaborative robots. Hazards related to it and some mitigation methods.

The transcripts for the videos are clearly not reviewed and include word substitution errors that could possibly be made by software or by someone who has English as a second language and erroneously selected a similar-sounding word. In some cases, you can figure out what is trying to be conveyed, but in other cases it's pretty confusing. Some of the additional resources are just advertisements from companies trying to sell their robots. Some of the additional resources links don't work. Some of the questions in the quizzes make no sense, partly because of incorrect word substitutions. Other issues include a yes/no question in week 4 where the "yes" answer and the "no" answer each provided an explanation after either the yes or the no... but the yes and the no were attached to the wrong explanations, thus causing the answers to be illogical and false. Another question asks about an arm being pinned by a robot, but the answer it wants is the answer for the user's palm being pinned. The palm is mentioned in the question, but the arm is the part the question says is pinned- so the answer the test wants is not the answer the question asks. The video in week 4 is terrible, and doesn't really effectively answer the question associated with it.
