Robots descended on Fallowfield this week - but not in a post-apocalyptic way. These handy tools, some as small as your arm and others as tall as a fully grown adult, were on display at a Manchester trade show to show the power of 'cobots'. Cobots are 'collaborative robots' designed to work with humans - and in some cases to replace them, exhibitors at the Universal Robots’ Cobot Automation Tour told the M.E.N. Last month it was reported that EU migration had fallen to its lowest level in ten years - and automation experts argue that … [Read more...] about Could these robots replace EU workers after Brexit?
