Examines efforts made to ensure the safety of operators in using robots. Looks at the use of simulation of robotic workcells, which in particular provides the benefit of allowing the user to develop and design workcells months before use. Details the method used and concludes that simulation can involve the safety engineer in processes at an early stage, before it is too costly to make necessary safety changes.
