The result of this rung-in change is intended to be that man and machine respectively do what they can do best. The weaknesses of one are compensated for by the strengths of the other.
The Changing Role of Robotics in Materials Handling: Industrial Journalist Thomas R. Cutler Interviews Steven Hogg of Bastian Robotics
Short-term, robotic integration will continue to grow as companies continue to establish automation plans, and long-term, robotic automation will be a standard in every facility. This will be a requirement for companies to compete in the global marketplace.
Industry 4.0 Smart Factories and Smart Machines continue to drive dramatic efficiency improvements across the supply chain, within the factory and inside machines.
The worldwide market for the agricultural robot has seen a boost in 2015 and many new products that are in field tests are expected to be commercially available by 2016.
Smart Homes, Robotics, Automation, Unmanned Vehicles, Solar and Wind Energy. Regardless of where you work or what you do, these topics are affecting your life and will continue to do so in the future.
Two existing bakery facilities were successfully integrated into one and finished goods capacity nearly doubled from 6,500 lbs. /hour to 12,000 lbs. /hour.
There really is an unusual affinity for human-like robotic things - which is why so much money is flowing to adapt these new social robots to quickly speak Chinese and Japanese in addition to English and to provide localized apps for their software stores.
If the robot is not sure whether it can complete the task-for example if the part is "buried" within the bin-it takes pictures of its situation and calls a remotely located human (the "human on call") for help.
Strongest Adoption of Computer Vision Technology seen in Consumer Electronics, Robotics and Machine Vision Applications
The commercialization of computer vision technology over the past few years has generated market opportunities in a variety of sectors.
The negatives of having a live pet could drive more people to selecting a robotic pet. In the end, it will be a personal choice.
Stratasys Direct Manufacturing sampled 700 professional users of 3D printing to identify current and future trends

Free Resource Helps Buyers Assess the True Cost of Ownership for the Best Value
RoboUniverse, robotics’ annual meeting of the minds, is rolling out in New York City this week—and in the keynote address today, we learned where the best robotics work in the world is happening. In it, he shared a list of world cities that are pretty much killing it in the robotics sphere. The innovation centers are, in no particular order: 1. Boston 2. Pittsburgh 3. San Jose/San Francisco (Silicon Valley) 4. Tokyo 5. Osaka 6. Seoul 7. Munich What determined this list? Kara said that robot innovation centers all share proximity to “excellent universities,” and regularly contribute to robotics R&D. It’s also hard to deny each location’s contributions to robotics so far: Silicon Valley and Tokyo are gimmes, but not everyone might be aware of the others.
