Modern robotics is helping organizations address business process challenges in new ways with flexible automation designed to enhance the capabilities of humans within the process — including security. This paper, produced exclusively for SIA members by research firm IDC, examines the opportunity, benefits, and reasons for growth in the robotic security market.
Service Robots provides examples of how service robots differ from collaborative robots, presenting familiar robot forms we already see around us, as well as emerging trends in service robotics. Topics in the e-book include anatomy of a service robot, a companion robot for the International Space Station, and the challenges of creating an appendage with the dexterity of the human hand.
The new e-book focuses on how collaborative robots (or cobots) interact and coexist with humans as they work side by side. Topics include cobot design, uses in manufacturing and industrial applications, motion control, and artificial intelligence (AI) in future cobot technologies. The new e-book from Mouser also examines the human aspect of collaborative robots, including articles on the social impact of robotics and the importance of safety in robotics design.
Increasing automation in the construction industry could displace or replace as much as 49% of the America’s blue-collar construction workforce (2.7 million workers) and eliminate nearly 500,000 non-construction jobs by 2057, according to a new study by the Midwest Economic Policy Institute (MEPI) and the Project for Middle Class Renewal at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
This paper evaluates whether Robotics equities traded on Stock Markets worldwide are a good investment opportunity or not. Robotics seems to become more and more attractive for both institutional investors (who act rationally and prefer medium to long term investments) and individual investors (who are driven by irrational behaviour and prefer short term investments). To forecast if robotics is an investment opportunity that could inflate a new financial bubble in the oncoming years, this paper compares robotics equities with Internet equities and analyses what happened during the Dot-com Mania in the 1990s. Many similarities come out as well as several key enabling factors that confirm robotics is a major investment opportunity for the next decade.
Automating the handling of diverse SKUs in e-commerce order fulfillment requires human-like flexibility at high speed. The market opportunity is huge. Experts estimate logistics robotics will grow at a 64% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) to $22B in 2021, rivaling automotive robotics. Technical innovations in artificial intelligence and robotics are now meeting the three requirements necessary for success: flexibility, reliability, and speed. This white paper explores how current technological advances unlock this huge opportunity.
In this eBook, we discuss why our dual-arm Highly Dexterous Manipulation System (HDMS) presents an unmatched level of innovation and control in the field of robotics. We also discuss the capabilities and applications of dual-arm mobile robots, the importance of interoperability as a requirement for today’s mobile systems, and the numerous applications that dual-arm systems can efficiently and effectively perform.
With high costs and multiple employee touch points, today’s distribution and fulfillment centers provide prime opportunities for robotic automation. This white paper examines the current and future state of robotics and their migration into DCs, examining methods for day-to-day operations to increase productivity and workflow in receiving, put away and replenishment, order fulfillment, pack out and shipping.
