Robots manipulators are more and more widespread in current industries due to their positional precision, repeatability and durability. They are usually applied in repetitive tasks where all the components are always in the same position and only a position control of the robot is needed. For example robot arms in automotive assembly lines perform a variety of tasks such as welding and parts rotation and placement during assembly. However, this is a sector where research and innovation are paramount. The manipulation by one or more robotic arms of complex objects is certainly one of the most important challenges in the context of robotic production. This innovation will reduce the difficulty of certain tasks performed today by the operators, but also to deal with a shortage labor and competitiveness from countries where labor costs are lower.
