Just automating existing processes may not be enough to stay competitive in international markets. What's needed is a complete rethink of what happens now, coupled with the imaginative application of emerging robotic innovations.
There has been a lot of investment by retailers in recent years to achieve a true omni-channel fulfillment strategy. Robots are enabling companies to improve the fulfillment process both in the warehouse and will soon be doing so in the retail store.
Robert Buderi for Xconomy: "helping people stay in their home as they age and maintain the lifestyle advantages of living at home." And that means, he says, "Were going to need a lot of robots."
The combination of new applications for robotics for automotive, military and healthcare applications and lower cost sensor technology is causing significant growth in the sensors for robotics market, according to BCC Researchs recent report on the topic.
Since the medical and manufacturing industries both handle sensitive materials, the shift to having robots handle them instead can save lives and cut costs.
An intelligent yet evil operating system connected to nearly every device we use on a daily basis. Seems like science-fiction-but are we starting to live in this kind of world?
Autonomous drones are set to take over border patrols, crime hotspot monitoring and more, says South Africa's Airborne Drones.
By connecting manufacturing leaders with end-users, implementing machines that are able to maintain themselves and teaching current employees how to work with the new line of industrial robotics, proactive and tech-savvy manufacturers are in a position to revolutionize the way they do business from this point forward.
The world's first robotic mobile phone RoBoHon, a pocket-size walking and dancing robot, started sale in last year in Japan offers a variety of services to Tourists.
Just like in other forms of competitive flying, drone pilots are constantly looking for equipment advances that will give them an advantage.
Robots that deliver essential items, entertain and inform, or teach your kids are becoming more common - and theyll become even more so in the coming year.
Mobility is a powerful enabler to intelligent robots as it increases the utilization of the robot in different form factors (land-based, air-based/space/drones, water-based and wearable/exoskeleton) and various applications.
With robotics protocols, hospital length of stay (LOS) after some thoracic procedures at LVHN has declined significantly.
Although some experts fear that rules and regulations might limit innovation, most see this step by the Federal government as a clear sign of validation for the imminent future of automated automotive transportation.
Future trends indicate that there will be a concentration on the collaboration of human and machine, simplified applications, and light-weight robots. We will also see an increased focus on modular robots and robotic systems, which will be marketed at exceptionally alluring prices.
