Robots are presented among workers, but these "collaborative robots" are called "cobots", as they introduce new issues in terms of human protection: is China pushing also "cobotic" ? how worker safety is managed ?

Thank you Philippe. That's an important question. We have not heard of any special emphases on cobots, or on related worker safety issues, in the overall range of policies supporting robotics in China. But given the sophistication and scale of use and manufacturing of robots in China it would be surprising if cobots were not involved.
