Robots have become so prevalent that they are poised to become a driving force for the economies of the future. Mordor Intelligence Research It shows that the global robotics industry will exceed $74 billion by 2026. This is a compound annual growth rate of more than 17% over six years. It’s also an indication that disabling bots in the workplace is only a matter of time.
Disruption does not mean employee or consumer dissatisfaction. Against all the warnings of science fiction, robots have proven their worth as helpers and helpers. Far from being a threat to society, it has given us plenty of opportunities to do things faster and safer. For example, in the tourist city of Pompeii, a A four-legged robot that roams and protects. In major cities, last-mile delivery robots make getting goods more efficient and cost-effective.
Should we abandon our generations’ fear of robots? Experts like Jeff Wong say yes.
Wong, EY’s global chief innovator, sees folding robots in everyday life as a welcome natural phenomenon. “I am sure that robots will enjoy an increasingly symbiotic relationship with humans around the world in the coming years,” he explains on LinkedIn. “They will work alongside us and will independently perform jobs that are increasingly difficult to fill, allowing employees and consumers to be more creative, strategic, productive and less task-oriented.”
Wong’s predictions are already beginning to come true. Robots are popping up in a variety of industries, and not always where you’d expect them to be. Here are some of the places where robots add value and open doors for innovation.
1. Robots are driving the evolution of healthcare.
Robots aren’t entirely new faces in medicine – they have been around for more than three decades. Now, though, more healthcare systems and providers are exploring ways to take advantage of robotics in surgical procedures. For example, the American Hip Institute uses robots in Hip replacement surgeries.
But robots don’t just get a seat in the operating room. They perform other tasks for health care workers and patients.
If you visit a larger hospital, you may see a robot delivering medicines, equipment, and other things. These types of robots are meant to eliminate the busy work responsibilities of nurses and staff. As the maker of Moxi, a medical delivery robot, explains, up to 30% of nurses’ duties are just “hunting and collecting.” Having a robot to deliver and fetch supplies allows frontline workers to spend time on more patient-centered concerns.
Another exciting use of robots in medicine is the exoskeleton. The exoskeleton robot can be wrapped around a person’s limb. Then the external structure of the limb gives additional strength. This provides opportunities for faster limb recovery for patients. However, exoskeletons are seen as supportive organs for health care team members as well. When wearing an exoskeleton device, health care workers may do so Reduce the chances of developing musculoskeletal disorders, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Lower work injuries for nurses means better care for everyone.
2. Robots are making their mark on agriculture.
Agriculture and agribusiness are sectors that require financial effort. Many producers rely on high-tech inventions to ensure increased crop yields and reduced pests. Take AI for example: you are starting to become a bigger player in agriculture. AI systems have the ability to make reliable predictions of harvest based on everything from drone images to unstructured data. And artificial intelligence is only beginning now that robots are becoming increasingly available.
Consider swarm farm robots. They are small autonomous vehicles that can quickly cross fields. Although most iterations of swarm farm robots can only perform a specific task, the possibilities for future adaptation are endless. And entrepreneurs around the world know this. SwarmFarm, a startup company from Australia, Received $4.5 million in funding To promote the development of ag-bots.
Agricultural machinery may end up staving off international food instability by reliably locating weeds or sowing seeds. As noted in The New York Times, the The world population will be close to 10 billion people by 2050. Using robots may be one of the most practical ways to make the most of Earth anywhere.
3. Robots make armies more prepared and trained.
Robots may be peaceful in nature, but they do affect combat. Military drones have been around for years, although they are not robots per se. Drones can go where the military can’t – or shouldn’t. It is well suited for reconnaissance missions and material transportation. underwater versions, like OrcaIt can act as a scout drone under the waves.
In training situations, robots allow military personnel to learn protocols. Combat robots move along the ground and can be programmed to go anywhere. After a successful training exercise, Major Corey Wallace noted the huge potential of these types of advanced robots: “This validated the idea that if we assign dumb, dirty, and dangerous tasks to robots, we could reset our soldiers to higher-priority complex tasks and tasks.”
Of course, military robots do not necessarily have to be offensive or defensive on the battlefield. It may be possible for robots to rescue wounded soldiers or civilians in a realistic situation. The robot has no qualms when entering an active combat zone to lure someone to safety. The bot only follows commands and provides services, ensuring that it is a trusted companion for its team.
Healthcare, agriculture, and the military are just three of the countless industries where robotics can have a positive and lasting impact. We just have to look beyond what we’ve learned about robot intentions from movies, television, and horror books. After all, it turns out that robots may be important assets in leading humanity forward.
