The stock of operational robots around the globe hit a new record of about 3.9 million units. This demand is driven by a number of exciting technological innovations. The International Federation of Robotics reports about the top 5 automation trends in 2024:
This article aims to dissect the trends within the four major categories of industrial robotics: SCARA robots, collaborative robots (cobots), gantry robots, and articulated robots.
We've reached that point in the year when it's time to reflect upon the trends from the past 12 months, while looking ahead at what 2024 has in store for the world of robotics and automation.
The manufacturing industry is undergoing significant changes due to the swift advancement of technology and evolving global dynamics.
Brace yourself as we dive into the top 10 incredible advancements that arose after 2020 and are radically changing the way we live, work and play.
Labor shortages present new opportunities for robotic automation. AI and connected digital networks will make robots easier to use, enabling them to take on more tasks in new industries.
2021 was a transformative year in development, adoption, funding, and M&A activity in the robotics industry. 2022 is off to a robust start and all signs point to rapid robotics growth over the next decade. Below are five key robotics trends to watch in 2022.
Post-pandemic acceleration continues for robots in new sectors like logistics and retail, and speeds up for EV production. Adoption of robots driving demand for new skills that require education and training.
Whilst initially a temporary measure to resolve manpower shortages and high employee costs, many companies are now investing in smart robotics as a permanent and long-term measure in a post-pandemic world.
The last two years accelerated ongoing robotic trends like AI integration, agile design, and widespread IIoT adoption. At the same time, new pressures from changing worker availability, and supply chain disruptions, created a higher demand for manufacturing robots.
There is a lot of buzz surrounding industrial analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). However, companies are not limited to taking large and costly decisions when it comes to exploring the possibilities.
The latest Manufacturing Institute for Supply Management's (ISM) Report on Business, reveals that economic activity in the manufacturing sector grew significantly in October 2020.
The warehouse robotics have offered a more efficient, reliable, and accurate way of handling demand and supply equation by letting robots perform functions such as pick-place, packaging, transportation, and palletizing.
The good news is progress is being made as the industry's best minds address each issue when it comes up. The one thing we can say with confidence is that tomorrow's vehicle will run on data...tons and tons of data which is comforting for flash industry people.
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.
