Robotics is one of the fastest-growing segments within the technology sector today and this refers to the development, manufacture, and application of robots across various types of industries. Growth in robotics has been fueled by advances in machine learning, sensor technologies, cloud connectivity, and declining costs for electrical components like CPUs and GPUs. As such, the number and types of robotics applications has expanded well beyond the traditional factory and warehouse settings to the home, office work, and beyond.
The robotics industry has permeated the following spaces in one way or another:
- Defense – this includes everything from drones to other sophisticated unmanned machines used by the military
- Industrial – in addition to modernizing the assembly line, robots are starting to take on more advanced automation tasks requiring greater dexterity and familiarity with their environment
- Healthcare – nanorobots are a budding field at the intersection of biotechnology and engineering
- Consumer – robot vacuum cleaners and kitchen appliances that talk to one another are just the start as we begin to embrace entirely new ways of integrating robots in our day to day lives.
The robotics revolution has tremendous growth potential across a plethora of industries ripe for disruption.
