Robots have come a long way in just a few years. They have advanced far beyond the mammoth welding bots in automotive. Those robots didn’t play well with humans. Now we’re seeing robots that are designed to interact safely and productively alongside people. We’re also seeing stronger robots with greater flexibility, more sophisticated software, and improved vision capabilities.
Robots are moving out of their traditional industrial manufacturing environment. You’ll now find robots doing assembly side-by-side with humans, working in a wide range of warehouse duties, and moving up and down the halls of healthcare facilities. Best of all, the cost of robots is coming down.
