Futurizonte Editor’s Note: It seems that the future of robotics is just the future. Hopefully, there will still be a place for us, humans.
From the article:
According to the demand, a major market share will involve professional service applications. Changes in customer behavior have emerged as a significant driver of the industry’s development. As an example, delivery services and online marketplaces have raised the demand for robotics in the fields of manufacturing customization and logistics. The recent necessity to automate more and more food delivery operations has resulted in an increase in the use of robotic methods in these fields. Immediately after demand and automation were recognized and implemented in the food industry, rovers were developed to transport food orders to customers around the globe.
Now, more and more businesses are employing delivery robots, adding robotics to various aspects of restaurant operations, and so on. Looking at the future of robotics, it is likely that this trend will persist and spread to more industries.
Individual aid and support enhancement are also being established through the use of mobile services. This includes robotic companions that can aid the aging demographic with personal grooming, household chores, and other activities of daily living. This trend is likely to expand as the future of the robotics industry unfolds.
It is already possible to find android-type robots with flexible manipulators on their hinges at world robotics exhibitions. These robots are capable of doing tasks such as:
Pouring water into a glass
Impressively, a humanoid robotic arm capable of solving a Rubik’s cube without the assistance of a human was also developed by employees of the OpenAI analytical center for artificial intelligence. In the near future, robots will be able to adapt to and learn from unforeseen events, thanks to advancements in artificial intelligence. As a result, these technologies will be particularly effective in non-repetitive operations.
