Robotic trends and new fields of application in post-Corona economy
Many cutting edge technologies are connected with the field of robotics, like machine learning and AI, IIOT, man-machinecollaboration or autonomous mobile systems. Intelligent robots are the crucial part of digitalization of the manufacturing industry.
The global manufacturing industry is facing big challenges however, like rapidly changing consumer trends, shortage of resources, shortage of skilled workers, aging society, and demand for local productions.
Flexible industrial robot-based automation delivers the solution to all these challenges. World Robotics observes the robotics industry and offers profound statistical data. It is your key to the world of industrial robots and service robots.
Orders for the new World Robotics reports can already be placed directly on our webpage.
