Industry Overview:
  The future is officially here, and Robotics has become an integral component in the safety and efficiency of the manufacturing process. Innovative entrepreneurs are pushing the boundaries of robotics and artificial intelligence into other industries, as well, from healthcare to transportation to retail. As robots improve in their abilities to see, think, and do, more openings sprout for them to enhance our world.

“But what about our jobs?” many people have asked. Never fear; although increasingly more jobs are being handled by automation technology, humans have a way of adapting. In fact, research shows that automation has a positive effect – while robotics implementation reduces the hours of lower-skilled workers, the total number of manned hours stays about the same while wages actually increase. In short, automation simply changes the kind of work that we do, not the amount.

Common Applications:
  Robots are used in a variety of industries including, the automotive, agriculture, aerospace, metals, nuclear, mining, medicine, and textile industries. Robotics is a rapidly growing field that has many applications, including:
  • Sensory Feedback
  • Information Processing
  • Actuators
  • Computer Vision
  • Control Systems
  • Dynamics and Kinematics
  • Engineering Cybernetics
  • Mechatronics
  • Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
  • Domestic Robots - Vacuum Cleaning, Floor Washing, Lawn Mowing
  • Surveillance
