SFEG director of operations, Matt Bush, described the idea of using a mobile robotic force but wondered how to make that happen with the issue of safety enclosures.

“I came across this idea of collaborative robots,” says Bush, “something that can work with humans and you didn’t have to be afraid of being around.”
