Robotic revolution: why now? A hardware perspective
We have previously argued that everything in the world of robotics is changing. Indeed, we have shown that robots are increasingly becoming collaborative, mobile and intelligent, leaving their confines in factories to enter more aspects of industry and daily life. This trend will have profound long-term economical and societal consequences. Indeed, our report New Robotics and Drones 2018-2038: Technologies, Forecasts, Players forecasts that the market for robots and drones will grow from $66 billion in 2018 to more than 210 billion in 2028.
Deep learning computer vision solution for trains
