Top Three Trends with the Current Iteration of Robotics

Posted on Robotics 24/7 on October 4, 2021, Dr. Bernard Casse authored an article entitled, " Top Three Trends with the Current Iteration of Robotics".

CEO and Founder of RIOS, where he leads a team focused on solving the last mile automation in the factory with dexterous, AI-powered robots. Dr. Bernard Casse begins this article on outlining the "Cambrian Explosion." Six years ago, the CEO of Toyota Research Institute published a paper on robotics and whether a Cambrian explosion was coming. the robotics space is exploding with technology advancements and diversification and applicability of robots. The top three trends are forecasting the direction of the robots in: ​

  1. The democratization of AI and the convergence of technologies

  2. The emergence of different schools of thought in robotics

  3. The proliferation of full-stack robots and adoption of RaaS

​ This thought-provoking article highlights three ways the robotics market is developing and changing out modern industrial landscape with the Cambrian explosion of robotics. Open-source machine learning frameworks are now broadly accessible. We have access to cloud computing platforms, data, and new hardware. The robotics world is taking shape with three different schools of thought: ​

  1. no-code programming

  2. artificial general intelligence (AI)

  3. end-to-end robotic work cells.

​ RaaS, or Robots-as-a-Service is an analogous to the pay-as-you-go subscription-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model. These practices are accelerating at an unprecedented pace as they remove the barriers to automation for many companies. ​ Read the full article at Robotics 24/7

RIOS develops and deploys dexterous AI-powered robots to factory assembly lines and warehouses to help global customers automate their supply chain or logistics operations. We’ve developed a first-of-its-kind haptic intelligence platform for robots – this enables our robot to handle hard-to-automate tasks that typically require human-level-dexterity and involve manipulating thousands of SKUs. Our robots possess higher levels of dexterity, cognitive skills, and autonomy than today's robots and operate in unstructured environments. ​ Many companies are connecting with our team of automation experts to learn more about opportunities within their facilities to integrate robotic automation. RIOS encourages you to reach out very soon. You can sign up to be the first to know and get your spot on the waiting list:
