Service Robotics: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 24, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Service robots are robots with semi- or fully-autonomous operations, with the ability to offer services useful for human beings. Unlike industrial robots, service robots function in close proximity to humans. Service robots of varying structures and forms find use in a wide range of personal and professional use applications. Following significant R&D focus, service robots have finally emerged with significant commercial promise. Robots are increasingly finding use in homes, offices, hospitals, museums, and other public places. Some of the commercialized forms of service robots include self-navigating lawn movers, vacuum cleaners, window washers, and surgical operators. The past few years have seen considerable growth in the use of service robots in both professional and personal use applications.
In the coming years, growth in the service robotics market will be driven by the growth in the personal use of robots in homes for household applications. A number of products such as autonomous lawnmowers are beginning to transform this market. In addition, service robots are now being developed to perform complex and intricate surgeries, and operate in fields such as agriculture, forestry, mining, cleaning, construction, demolition, and freight transport. Robots are also being used in dangerous search and rescue missions. Driven by rapid technology advancements, future robots will be able to provide assistance to humans in a more intuitive manner. Technology advances in adaptive behavior will foster use of entertainment robots such as pet robots. Another promising area of growth for robots is in providing care for the elderly, particularly those suffering from conditions such as dementia. Few robots have already been developed for meeting the needs of patients, including rehabilitation robots, telepresence robots, food delivery robots, and companion robots.
The market for personal use service robots is reaching a stage where efforts are being made to produce them on a mass scale. Small and medium enterprises are well positioned to exploit the advantages of professional service robots in applications such as outdoor and field operations, autonomous transport, cleaning, logistics, underwater maintenance and exploration, medical and rehabilitation, and as exoskeletons.
