Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


It is widely accepted that every country needs to be forward thinking to remain competitive in manufacturing in the twenty first century. Some European countries have the advantage of a rich history in automation and robotics in their manufacturing industries. Looking forward, Industry 5.0 will be the next industrial revolution, and will emanate from Industry 4.0. Collaborative Robotics will play a significant role by enabling humans and robots to work together in harmony. In 2021, as part of a doctoral thesis titled “Collaborative robotics in Industry 5.0” data were gathered for a case study in the south east of Ireland by the author of this paper. The results serve to provide an interesting benchmark for collaborative robotics in Irish industry. A brief summary of some of these results is shared here as well as ta novel conceptual framework and definition of Industry 5.0.
