Humanoid robot market to double by 2023, industrial robotics to hit $72B

Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic:  The humanoid robot market will grow from $320.3 million this year to $3.9 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 52%, according to research from ReportsnReports. This growth will be driven by the introduction of more advanced features in this robots, as well as a number of societal factors, the report found.

By 2023, we will see an increasing use of humanoid robots for education, as well as in the retail industry, to better personalize customer support. The medical and logistics sectors are also interested in integrating more artificial intelligence (AI) via robots, as do industries that run autonomous rescue operations, according to the report.

Leading manufacturers in the humanoid robot market include Soft Bank, Robotis, Kawada Robotics, Honda Motor, Ubtech Robotica, and NASA.

In 2016, North and South America held the largest share of the humanoid robot market. "The Americas is the early adopter of humanoids for all the major applications, such as public relations, personal assistance and caregiving, and education and entertainment, resulting in the maximum demand for robots from this region," according to the report. However, the Asia-Pacific region (APAC) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023, the report found.  Full Article:

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
