While robotics systems are quite common in manufacturing, many of them are inflexible as they have been designed for a perfect fit to the task. However due to advances in measurement science, processor miniaturization, sensor technology and cognitive technology, robotic systems can be made to be much more flexible in application. In fact, they can operate with a higher degree of precision and flexibility and be applied to a wider array of operations. By implementing robotic systems with these advanced “smart” capabilities, manufacturers can redesign processes and factory floors to accommodate a wide variety of product configurations and services.
Achieving these systems will allow for greater efficiency and cost savings in continuous processes as well as facilitate faster mass customization services. Many governments see these initiatives as a way to revitalize or bolster manufacturing processes and therefore national industries. For example, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology sites government studies as follows:
“Robotics is a key transformative technology that can revolutionize manufacturing… the promise of flexible automation and automation for mass customization has not been realized except for special cases…. Robots [need] to be smarter, more flexible, and able to operate safely in less structured environments shared with human workers.”
The advent of the industrial Internet of Things and sister trends such as smart manufacturing and the Industry 4.0 initiatives are driving accelerated development in smart robotics in manufacturing. Globally these initiatives generated investments of REDACTED in 2016, which will increase to REDACTED in 2017 and nearly REDACTED in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED.Report Scope:
