The Global Robotics Market stood at USD49.94 billion in 2020 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of over 4.91% by 2026 due to rising necessity for remote communications in various sectors. This can help different organizations in reducing travel expenses, providing faster services and uplifting collaborations which is expected to positively influence the Global Robotics Market in the forecast years.
The factories of tomorrow may look different, but their transformation by AI into robotic-powered factories of the future will represent a new era for lean manufacturing.
Industrial automation and robotic systems have now advanced to a stage whereby they’re more capable, cheaper than they once were and easier to integrate and install within software technology. Although large companies such as Amazon, DHL, LEGO, and Tesla have embraced automation within the warehouse, key barriers to implementing this technology remain, particularly for the SME market.
The software will bring immediate picking and replenishment productivity gains that will later be increased with the addition of inVia Picker autonomous mobile robots.
Researchers have created a robotic lizard that can scale vertical walls just like the actual animal. While Boston Dynamics and other robotics firms have risen to prominence with agile, dog-like animatronics for disaster zones, scientists at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia focused their attention on a species of reptiles that can snake into places others can’t go.
It is common for science fiction to envision future worlds in which robots and other intelligent systems coexist and closely cooperate with human beings. Today we have the first automated vehicles (AVs) on our roads, and the first service robots operating close to us, in some cases, within our own homes. Reality seems to be catching up with fiction.
efore we get too far into this week’s roundup, I want to kick things off with an interview we haven’t published anywhere else. Earlier this week, we noted that Ford will be deploying some 100 researchers and engineers to the new $75 million facility at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
Robots have gained traction in many forms over the past decade, offering unique solutions to complex challenges and driving efficiencies in our daily lives. While these innovations have evolved year after year, the emergence of COVID-19 has been a new awakening for the robotics and automation industry.
There’s a growing interest in employing autonomous mobile robots in open work environments such as warehouses, especially with the constraints posed by the global pandemic.
How did Michael Crichton, Sean Connery, and Wesley Snipes factor into the creation of a preeminent robotics firm?
The story begins on the movie set of the 1993 action thriller “Rising Sun,” starring Connery and Snipes and based off the Crichton novel of the same name.
For decades, a certain order structured the world of automation. Robots, most recently those powered by AI and Big Data, worked in factories, while humans enjoyed the benefits of their labor where we live and work.
Japanese space startup Gitai has raised a $17.1 million funding round, a Series B financing for the robotics startup. This new funding will be used for hiring, as well as funding the development and execution of an on-orbit demonstration mission for the company’s robotic technology, which will show its efficacy in performing in-space satellite servicing work. That mission is currently set to take place in 2023.
Robots that could take on basic healthcare tasks to support the work of doctors and nurses may be the way of the future. Who knows, maybe a medical robot can prescribe your medicine someday?
As human interaction with robots and artificial intelligence increases exponentially in areas like healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, space exploration, defense technologies, information about how humans and autonomous systems work within teams remains scarce.
Cornell University researchers have created a low-cost method for soft, deformable robots to detect a range of physical interactions, from pats to punches to hugs, without relying on touch at all. Instead, a USB camera located inside the robot captures the shadow movements of hand gestures on the robot’s skin and classifies them with machine-learning software.
