In recent years, cable management has come into the limelight because machine reliability has increased dramatically, even though robots have grown more complex. Unfortunately, the methods used to attach and guide cables have not quite followed suit. While managing cables and hoses is often an afterthought in most designs, it is truly a vital part of any well-functioning robot. Most experts agree that one of the top blunders made is underestimating cable-management issues. The less is more approach to cable management is a best practice that robotics engineers and integrators can apply.
