Artificial Intelligence Drives Advances in Collaborative Mobile Robots

While the robots use sensors and algorithms to safely navigate even dynamic environments, they aren't able to apply this sensory input for advanced decision-making.

Companies Are Buying Services Instead of Robots

Traditionally, robots have been purchased as capital equipment and used to automate a part of the workflow. Recently, companies have been exploring the idea of hiring robot workers similar to the way people are hired: as contractors.

Why Robots Are a Cure Rather Than a Curse for Manufacturing

If robots are to solve the labor shortage in US manufacturing, then they will need to significantly expand the type of tasks that they can carry out.

The Robot Army is Moving

A threat to jobs, a health and safety risk and a technological nightmare. Despite these common protests against robotic technology, demand is growing, creating a new challenge for robot component suppliers.

Who's Winning the Robot Race?

Three-quarters of total robot sales are currently attributed to just five countries - China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, the United States and Germany.

Service Robotics to Reach Greater Feats With Innovation and Advanced Technologies

Service robotics is an emerging field that aims to eliminate labor and improve efficiency by replacing manual and labors tasks. Innovation has taken place across the world to solve the labor shortage issue with cooking robots.

6 Disrupting Trends in Industrial Robotics Poised To Transform Manufacturing

As it is clear that industrial robotics would continue to transform every sector in several ways, here are some of the prominent trends that would play a vital role in the coming years.

Is Robotization Destroying or Creating Jobs?

The human vs. robot topic in workplaces has been in the spotlight for quite a while. While many people are concerned about the risk that robots would massively replace humans, the truth is that robotization is actually creating jobs.

Industrial Robots Stepping in to Help Economies with Inadequate and Expensive Labor Force

The process of training robots through virtual Reality is referred to as Imitation learning. This technique assists a robot to absorb several skills in a low-cost and low risk environment. The robots can easily mimic the human, guided by machine learning algorithms.

A.I. -Rules, Learning and Reason

There needs to be standards by which developers are held accountable for the use and impact of their A.I. technology. Appropriate laws need to be written to govern the use of A.I. And most importantly, A.I. is a tool not a replacement for humans.

The Perfect Storm of Automation, Autonomous Machines and Artificial Intelligence

What if you need to be an expert by the time you graduate from school simply because autonomous machines and automation have taken over work that is predictable and regular?

AgBots: The Fourth Agricultural Revolution, Ready to Take Over Farms

In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.

What are Service Robots?

Most professional service robots are semi-autonomous or fully autonomous robots that have some mobility and interact with people, usually in a retail, hospitality, healthcare, warehouse or fulfillment setting

Robotics Predictions: The impact of IoT, collaborative robots and startups

Start-ups must consider regulatory regulations from the start of design, which rarely happens. A wonderful product doesn't sell very well if many companies will not purchase because they to not meet applicable safety regulations.

Advancements in Robotics: Predictions for 2019

In 2019 we'll see many incremental changes in robotics technology and business models that will keep us moving steadily forward. Some predictions will prove correct, while new and surprising developments will exceed our wildest dreams.
