Robot Control

Users control the robot (when using compatible sample environments) with the custom 11BM UserControl scripting software.


Safety Interlock

Humans are prevented from injury through contact by the robot when moving via a combination of an engineered control (the Robot-Human Safety System, RHSS) and an associated procedural control policy. Both are described in a memo on robot safety.
