This highlights the problem of using a commercially available robot in that the work environment has to be tailored around the arm. How this is achieved can be crucial to how successful the system is. The usefulness of the system depends on how many “tasks” can be laid out within the work environment. Whenever a certain task is not available to the robot or the user, the usefulness of the system comes to a halt and a colleague has to be called in to intervene. Obviously in an office environment this can be allowed for, but the ability to work independently has been compromised.
