Increasingly, robots are seen as a solution to many of the structural problems facing the developed world – sagging productivity, aging populations, swelling healthcare budgets, and even epidemics of depression and increasingly fragmented society. Of course, not all share this view, and many are worried about the impact of robotics on employment and social structures.
Whatever you think of robotics, a revolution is occurring around them. Software and processing technology, sensors, commercial drones, autonomous vehicles, and developments around collaborative robots (co-bots) are all driving robotics capabilities to new heights and driving uptake of millions of consumer, entertainment, and service and industrial robots.
In the utilities industry, robots and drones are increasingly being explored as a way of improving the inspection of dangerous and hard to reach assets, as well as maintaining those assets. Robotics are also important in the nuclear industry, enabling the safe handling of radioactive waste, for example.
This report divides the robot value chain into three segments: brains; assembly; and components.
This report explores the benefits of robotics and drones in the utilities industry.
-The importance of robotics in the nuclear industry as well; for instance, enabling the safe handling of radioactive waste
-The report further divides the robot value chain into three segments – brains, assembly, and components
-The report also highlights key players in every segment, including industrial robotics, service robots, drones, software components, and hardware components
