Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are two fields that are developing quickly and have limitless potential for the future of humanity. Developing robots that can do tasks with incredible speed and accuracy, from the easiest to the most complex and demanding in our everyday lives, is now possible thanks to advancements in robotics and AI. We no longer need to be worried that these machines will supplant humans in the workforce. Instead, robots and AI work in conjunction with humans to execute jobs more efficiently and correctly than we could alone. Thanks to services like Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, and others, we predominantly interact with robots and AI daily. Because of developments in AI, we can now create computer systems that grow and change over time.
Recent research by StartUS insights was conducted on 8949 robotics startups and scaleups to gain data-driven insights into technology-based solutions to comprehend the upcoming trends in the robotics industry. Here are the future robotics trends you need to know.
Here’s a glimpse of future trends in robotics
Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs)
According to industry predictions, demand for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) has been expanding over the past several years and will continue to do so in the years to come. Manufacturing and hospitality are the two industries where AMRs are most common. Workers are exposed to hazardous scenarios like toxic chemicals, heavy machines, or confined spaces in manufacturing environments. Startups and scaleups automate several industrial processes to counteract this. They use sensors, AI, and vision of computers to comprehend their immediate surroundings and maneuver on their own,
In plants, AMRs transport sub-assemblies and parts over long distances to speed up processes and save workers from moving heavy carts. AMRs are mainly used for disinfection and food delivery in the hospitality industry. Robots are being quickly adopted for quick and contactless deliveries and offer something distinctive to attract shoppers’ attention with robots serving food. As a result, the delivery robots’ market is expanding rapidly worldwide.
PROVEN Robotics amps up the supply of autonomous delivery robots in the GCC
PROVEN Robotics, in collaboration with Pudu, supplies premium autonomous delivery robots, i.e., BellaBot and KettyBot, in the GCC region. BellaBot, a cat-like robot, is equipped with a multimodal interaction system and can avoid obstacles in three dimensions. On the other hand, KettyBot functions as a delivery cum reception robot. It comes with a clearance of 55cm and can easily maneuver through complex surroundings. Many restaurants have already adopted the service of these two robots to provide contactless delivery of food, beverages, groceries, and other items.
Robots can use real-time information and optimize tasks due to incorporating AI into robotics. To achieve this, startups employ machine learning, reinforcement learning, dynamics modeling, computer vision, and more. Robots are also taught to become more accurate and effective with large datasets and real-time data, enabling them to recognize objects and navigate seamlessly.
Collaborative robots (cobots)
In contrast to traditional industrial robots, collaborative robots use cutting-edge sensors and algorithms, ensuring safe behavior around people. End-of-arm tooling is typically used for automating assembly tasks like screw drilling or welding. During integration, cobots complement current production lines to assist workers while minimizing production downtime. Additionally, cobots can be a perfect tool for STEAM lessons, allowing learners to practice independently.
PROVEN Robotics brings DOBOT, a robotic arm, to daily life
DOBOT can optimize human-robot collaborative work to help enterprises in cost-cutting, in addition to serving as a STEAM assistant for the education sector. Whether doing fine work or moving big objects, DOBOT can perform wonderful things by bringing excellent convenience from 3D printing, laser engraving, writing, drawing, or grabbing objects.
The global RaaS market is expected to increase by over US$2BN in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 18.12% between 2021 and 2026. Different industries have used robots to remain competitive as their operations get more sophisticated every day. By using robots-as-a-service, businesses can benefit from their capabilities without incurring the upfront costs of expensive automation upgrades. RaaS is a cloud-based ‘robotic rental’ system that enables users to install robotics without requiring the necessary infrastructure required by more traditional robotics implementations. Users can integrate the capabilities, upgrade or downgrade systems as requirements change, and install robots anytime.
PROVEN Robotics is equipped with the most competitive robots in the market, allowing organizations to leverage our robots through a subscription model.
A robotic cybersecurity solution prevents data breaches and asset outages by securing endpoints and connection stacks. The growing need for connectivity in robotics and integration of IoT has become the new target for cyber-attacks. To avoid that, many organizations feel the need to deploy cybersecurity. Furthermore, safeguarding robotic solutions against unwanted access is essential due to the utilization of robotics in the defense, manufacturing, healthcare, and space industries.
The application of drones benefits a range of industries by delivering packages, mapping and collecting aerial data, looking after infrastructure, and many more. Additionally, drones are expanding in agriculture to track crops or monitor cattle movements. Last-minute delivery of groceries and medical supplies can be made more efficient with drones’ adaptability.
Internet of Robotic Things
Robotics focuses on interaction, manufacturing, and autonomous behavior, while the Internet of Things (IoT) provides sensing, tracking, and monitoring. The performance of connected robots is driven by edge computing platforms, enabling feedback-driven workflows by collecting and sending data.
Since the epidemic, the demand for humanoid robots has increased because of the variety of industries in which they can be used. They also visit the sick and old and serve as hosts and welcome guests at the front desk. They automate jobs, like other robots, to reduce costs and boost production.
PROVEN Robotics offers humanoid robots Pepper and NAO in a wide range of industries. Pepper is extremely popular as a reception assistant and NAO as an ASD therapy assistant and classroom companion.
Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
AGVs typically transport materials in warehouses, distribution centers, and production facilities. In addition to obstacle-detection bumpers, their movement is controlled by software and sensor-based navigation systems, enabling them to follow a predetermined path.
People with a range of disabilities increasingly benefit from assistive robots by providing them with independence and quality of life. They use sensors and clever algorithms to sense, process and communicate with people. Startups improve the cognitive decision-making abilities of robots to help the elderly, differently abled, or unwell carry out their daily tasks.
