Who controls who?

They're leaving their cages and moving closer: In the future, it will become much more common for robots to work together with humans making the same product. For this reason, the incredibly precise and fast devices have to be made safe so that they won't injure the people working with them. “APAS” sensor skin makes them particularly safe. The robot stops if someone gets too close to it, even before they touch. It's monitored by 120 proximity sensors which stop the robot from moving when there is a distance of just 50 mm between the worker and the machine.
