If I understand correctly, does your question regard whether a robot can be mounted in a configuration other than the ground or a floor surface? If that is the question, the answer is "yes." Robots can be mounted in any number of ways, including overhead gantries or other suitable structures, which would allow for required access to the work area. You will want to check with the specific robot manufacturer to ensure the model selected is suitable for such mounting. It also goes without saying that the mounting structure needs to be designed to accommodate the load.
