I am starting work on my first collaborative robot system and need to do the risk assessment. Is the risk assessment for a collaborative system still the task based risk assessment that I have done many times in the past or doe the risk assessment for a collaborative robot system need to be done in a different way?
Yes. The risk assessment should still be task based. Follow the methodology in RIA TR R15.306-2016 and RIA TR R15.606-2016. Your hazard list will definitely contain some hazards which will require some force testing.
