Technological innovations are ready to bring part of intelligence in machines to make them ready to support or day to day activities. Artificial intelligence based smart robots are expected to grow from $4.06 billion in 2017 to reach $17.56 by 2025 with CAGR of 20%. Its not going to only impact markets of developed countries but also developing countries like India too. Recently there was a launch of robotic ant by a swiss research institute, in collaboration with one Japanese company. A research team from the University of Cambridge, demonstrated a robot that can harvest iceberg lettuce that can be beneficial for correcting problems like agricultural labour shortage and wastage of food. A polymer-based noiseless robotic jellyfish was introduced by a professor from IIT Indore. Its expected that in near future, the collaboration of robots and humans could prove to be very helpful for major developments.
The robotic ant introduced by swiss researchers is named as Tribot. It weighs around only 10 grams and they can very effectively communicate with each other with help of proximity sensors and infrared sensors. They also can replace themselves when it breaks down. Such features can be very useful in rescue operations and in emergency relief situations. Every tiny robot has built in battery and sensors that can help them to overcome major obstacles and hurdles.
Vegbot is something that is composed of two elements computer vision system and cutting system that has integrated camera. Its tests are getting conducted successfully on the fields.
Shape memory based and noiseless robotic jellyfish is very useful for studying and analysing behaviour of marine species. The robots are ready to be part of our life now.
