Robotics are the next natural step in automation evolution and businesses have been implementing robotics for decades, mostly in the realm on manufacturing as a mean for workplace automation. Robotics are usually used for complex automatization processes which also have a certain degree of flexibility in terms of production capabilities.

Can be seen that nowadays in robotics have a tendency to branch out from robots/robotic arms to CoBots (collaborative robots). CoBots are designed to share a workspace with humans, making automation easier than ever before for businesses of all sizes. CoBots are lightweight, space-saving, and easy to re-deploy to multiple applications without changing your production layout. Moving the CoBot to a new process is fast and easy, giving you the agility to automate even small batch runs and frequent line change-overs.

Main development areas of robotics:

  1. Cognitive automation
  2. Safety and security
  3. Warehouse logistics
  4. Hazardous work
  5. Self-driving cars
  6. Supplementing retail
  7. Health care
