ABB predicts top US robotics trends
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.
5 Robotics Trends in 2022
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.
ABB predicts key trends that will change robotic automation 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.
Digital Transformation and Industrial Robots Outlook
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.
Trends in Industrial Robotics to Watch in 2022
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.
Incremental Steps to Creating Value With Industrial Data Analytics
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.
A brighter future? Automation trends of 2021
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.
Rapid Launches and Strategic Acquisitions Propel Growth of Warehouse Robotics
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.
Industry Develops Realistic Future for Autonomous Cars
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.
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.

uEye XC AUTOMATICALLY PERFECT IMAGES
Combining the ease of use of a webcam with the performance and reliability of an industrial camera? The uEye XC autofocus camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems proves that this is possible. Its high-resolution imaging, simple setup and adaptability make it an invaluable tool for improving quality control and streamlining workflows in industrial settings - especially for cases where users would normally employ a webcam. The uEye XC autofocus camera features a 13 MP onsemi sensor and supports two different protocols: USB3 Vision, which enables programmability and customization, and UVC (USB Video Class). The UVC functionality enables a single cable connection for easy setup and commissioning, while delivering high-resolution images and video. This makes the uEye XC camera an ideal option for applications that require quick setup and need to manage variable object distances. Additional features such as digital zoom, automatic white balance and color correction ensure precise detail capture, which is essential for quality control.
