Dobot developed the Nova Series of collaborative robots designed for retail customers to handle tasks such as making coffee, cocktails, ice cream, noodles, fried chicken, and even physical therapy.
The Nova 2 and the Nova 5 are the first two models in the Nova Series with payloads of two kg and five kg for handling retail and physiotherapy tasks respectively. They can replace workers to help reduce operating expenses and decrease direct human contacts during pandemics.
Taking into consideration that most retail stores do not have full time engineers on staff, the Nova Series is designed to be easy to use. Setting up a Nova takes as little time as 10 minutes.
The series has safety features to sense human movement, and stops operation in 0.01 second upon collision detection. In case of power outage, Nova automatically freezes in position to ensure safety of others.
