Smart sensors - sensors with artificial intelligence built-in – will improve, eliminating the requirement for data to be routed to the cloud or centralized servers for processing before being acted on.
FREMONT, CA: In recent decades, robots have transformed the manufacturing and industrial worlds, and they are now making inroads into the broader world of business, as well as our homes. Apart from robotic vacuum cleaners, the concept of home aid robots has taken a long time to catch on. The apparent uses range from robotic companions for the elderly to robots that feed, play with, and care for pets while their owners are away. Here are three robotics trends:
Collaborative robots, also known as cobots, are the nice face of workplace automation. They aren’t here to take our jobs, but rather to work alongside us, offering timely advice or just mechanical muscle when we need it. In addition, businesses will recognize that putting robots in areas that are dangerous or inhospitable to people can boost efficiency as robotic technology becomes more common and deployment costs fall.
Building sensors into the extremities of automated systems, where machines encounter the real-world environments they are meant to impact, made robots perfect platforms for edge computing. Smart sensors - sensors with artificial intelligence built-in – will improve, eliminating the requirement for data to be routed to the cloud or centralized servers for processing before being acted on.
Robotic delivery devices are widely expected to tackle the “last mile” problem that plagues delivery operations - the most costly part of the delivery process, where a large number of small, individually packaged products must be precisely targeted to arrive on time and in good condition.
