The user can position apps on the Franka’s desk (computer interface) and perform complex tasks within minutes. Once the solution is complete, the procedure can be saved to the cloud and shared with other Franka robots. In theory, one could have an entire production line of Frankas programmed in less than an hour.
This collaborative-robot or ‘cobot’ is highly dexterous with seven degrees of freedom and a 0,1-millimeter accuracy. The arm can reach 80 cm and can lift a 3 kg payload.
