Robotics[edit]

A CoBot (a portmanteau of collaborative robot) is a robot intended to physically interact with humans in a shared workspace.[1] This is in contrast with other robots, designed to operate autonomously or with limited guidance.

Cobots are utilised for various tasks — from autonomous robots capable of working together with humans in an office environment that can ask you for help,[2] to industrial robots having their protective guards removed as they can react to a human presence under EN ISO 10218.[3]

Software[edit]

Cobot is a web-based management application made specifically for coworking spaces.

Cobot was started by Upstream Agile GmbH in 2010 at the coworking space co.up, but driven by the interest of other spaces, quickly grew into a major product for our company.

The core principles of Cobot are simplicity and ease of use. Cobot is not a generic ERP, billing or CRM system; it is specifically made to fit the needs of coworking spaces. Cobot is adapted to specific country needs as well as available in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese.
