About the book

The industry 4.0 or intelligent industry is part of the industrial revolution, it is hyperconnected, automated, digitized and customized industry with 9 pillars that are AI, IoT, COBOTS, cyber security, augmented reality, 3D printing, simulation, big data, cloud computing, vertical and horizontal integration and related topics such as digital marketing, 5G mobile phones, autonomous vehicles, circular economy, etc.

Among the fundamental pillars at the level of processes and production chains are the collaborative robots or cobots that for certain activities show great advantages in regard to weight, mobility, security, etc. In this book the great advances at industrial level in the area of collaborative robots will be discussed as well as the versatility and present advantages in the intelligent industry and many applications at the technological level. It will show great advances and contributions of researchers and engineers in this area of research. It will also serve as a reference book for students, professionals, researchers and entrepreneurs interested in the robotics sector and in collaborative robots in particular.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
