  • Publication number: 20200276712
    Abstract: A robot system includes a robot including an arm, a control section configured to control operation of the robot, a gripping section coupled to the arm and configured to grip a cable, at one end of which a connector is provided, and a detecting section configured to detect contact of the gripping section and the connector. The control section causes the gripping section to perform first gripping for gripping the cable to restrict movement of the cable in a thickness direction of the cable, moves the gripping section toward the connector in a state in which the first gripping is performed, stops the movement of the gripping section based on a detection result of the detecting section, and causes the gripping section to perform second gripping for gripping the connector.
