The COVID-19 pandemic has forced changes to our daily lives, but when it comes to technology, not all changes have been unwelcomed. In many ways, shifting the way we live has accelerated the use of technology to a level that we were only beginning to dip our toes into.
By the year 2022, robotics in law enforcement is expected to be a $5.7 billion industry. This statistic is on trend with a datasheet which found that police agencies recently acquired a record number of robotics available from the U.S. military.
Warehouses and distribution centers (DCs) are an integral part of the move towards intelligent automation. It is a trend that will accelerate, as the world responds to a normalization of consumer demand.
The capabilities of the UVH-170 unmanned helicopter address many social (medical, pharmaceutical, remote communities, humanitarian aid, etc.) and economic (mining, oil & gas, courier, etc.) use-cases being requested by the customers.
The Aertos drones are able to fly stably indoors without external navigational aids such as GPS, VOP, LORAN, magnetic bearings, optical flow, or similar external navigational aids.
Drones offer some promising solutions to some of our perennial public challenges. We'll take a look at a few key areas in which they're already starting to make a difference across various community issues.

We already know that robotics can help protect our oceans in a number of ways, from improving wastewater treatment to improving fuel efficiency on ships. Thus, it makes sense that robotic assistance can have a positive impact on the sustainable energy sector.
Aerial Drones And Launch Of Novel Technologies Opens New Opportunities For Autonomous Last-Mile Delivery
Last-mile delivery is the toughest and the most expensive endeavor in the supply chain. Thanks to the instant gratification of millennials, today's customer preference is extremely sensitive.
Air cargo facilities are undergoing rapid digital transformation via the adoption of automation technologies. - the most recent one being fully autonomous drones. At the leading edge of this innovation in inventory management is IAG Cargo.
The trend of investment in and acquisition of mobile robotic companies seeking to automate the movement of goods within warehouses, fulfillment centers, and manufacturing facilities is still rising. Only in recent months, IDTechEx has seen three notable activities.
It's plotting a new course to the destination utilities are already sailing to (a proactive condition based asset management) and that this new course or technology is often seen as a disruption first before realizing it as an opportunity.
This, in turn, is driving inventory stakeholders to move their top-tier sites from majority bulk storage to majority racking, and from traditional aisles to very narrow aisles (VNAs). Rack heights have steadily increased from 25 feet, on average, to 35 feet or more.
Insurance companies already employ 17% of all commercial drones. Drones can play a part in all the stages of the insurance lifecycle, especially claims management and fraud prevention.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
