Robotic applications have knocked on the door of uncharted territory, with work increasingly being handed over to robots working on it tirelessly. This has resulted in organizations saving a lot of time to achieve higher levels of efficiency. As technology changes, these robots become more advanced and autonomous as they learn how to do work faster and better than humans.
Why is the industry using robots on such a high scale? The reason is simple, accuracy, intelligence, and endless energy levels elevate them to be the perfect employees for a wide variety of jobs from supply chain management to healthcare. But this is a traditional robotic application, which has been discussed and discussed.
AI and robotics in public safety and security have evolved, leading to more diverse and powerful forces for good against an evolving threat landscape. As an example, from relentless patrol robots to predictive analytics on the IoT scale, and automated airport security technologies that help enforcement agencies maintain the security that allows businesses, communities, and citizens to stay safe.
Another industry domain where robots are used to offer a more personalized and interactive experience. Robots in entertainment industry have become a public attraction. Example of a theme park where giants like Disney World experiment with autonomous robots to entertain park visitors and receive positive feedback from guests. Besides, in the filmmaking industry, robotic stunt doubles are used to perform risky stunts that allow filmmakers to record realistic action sequences without risking any injury to the actors.
Agriculture is constantly faced with pests, unpredictable weather, soil conditions, and changes in labor supply. Agricultural equipment nowadays has become more sophisticated that can autonomously navigate, harvest specific crops, plant, and filter out unwanted weeds. Milking machines have just started the beginning of robotic applications for the livestock industry.
Robots are increasingly being used for pollution monitoring, plant care, and even planting or sowing new crops. Due to the lack of manpower, the demand for robots is high for picking and moving fruit, in the horticultural industry.
Robotically controlled machines allow astronauts to explore space in the most confusing ways. The most commonly used space robots are Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and Remote Manipulator Systems (RMS) that are used in several space missions. A robotically controlled ROV can be an unmanned spacecraft that orbits freely or lands when it touches the surface of outer space to explore the terrain.
Moreover, both ROVs and RMSs capture incredible data that gives access to visual recordings of something that would be difficult to achieve humanly without the help of robots.
Remote Robotic Surgery
Surgery with the help of robots has changed the face of the medical world. The healthcare domain has undergone a revolution expanding the capabilities of surgeons in a variety of ways. For example, in a complex surgical procedure, a robot instructs a human surgeon who has computer console control to move an instrument mounted on the robot arm. The surgeon’s movements are translated by a computer which is then performed on the patient by a robot. Medical procedures today are so advanced that it is possible to perform medical surgery by specialists located in different geographical domains.
Underwater robots have radically changed the way we see the world from the ocean floor. Underwater robots can dive longer and deeper than any human, and provide a close-up view of marine life, a boon for aquatic enthusiasts. The most commonly used underwater robot today is a human-controlled remote-controlled (ROV) vehicle sitting at a command center. This advanced ROV is connected via cable to the ship and is touted as the best tool for collecting data and images of underwater life.
Robots are essentially used in logistics supply chain management as opposed to historically limited to assembly line operations. As industrial robots become more sophisticated and able to handle more responsibilities, manufacturers have begun to explore their use in warehouses.
