Designed to replace human workers amid a worldwide worker shortage, the compact design of the Nova series of cobots includes a number of safety features such as the ability to sense human movement and the ability to halt operations immediately upon collision detection.

The Nova series of cobots can reportedly perform a variety of tasks including making coffee and cocktails, serving ice cream and other foods, and performing physical therapy tasks.
