I do machine motion programming and support. The outer boundry of any automated machine programmed to move must extend three feet beyond it's area of potential movement along with any tooling or product it's holding. That means a lockout-tagout cage which cannot be opened when the machine is energized with electricity, air, hydraulics, and gravity hazards.

Nobody works along side an automated robot which would crush you like a bug or cut you in half at a pinch point. I think OSHA has something to say about that.

That’s the difference between how a “low information” person and someone that’s informed looks at “robots”.

A “robot” is a machine. It moves as it is programmed to do.
It is not some anthropomorphized metal human.

Of course, this won't apply to autonomous cars, i.e., robot automobiles.

Sounds like a cool job. I just brought my Mindstorm Robot to work to demo a solution for testing video calls within a conference call. The robot performs motion at various speeds to test for anamolies in frame rate, resolution, video artifacts etc. It is outside my normal job, but I would love to do this for a living.
