Robotics - The Next Industrial Revolution
Technological advances in both hardware and software fields have increased the speed, flexibility and adaptability of robotics whilst also making them cheaper than ever before. These advances have led automation and robotics to the cusp of widespread adoption across a vast range of manufacturing, commercial and consumer applications. They will be a key driver of the next industrial revolution with fully automated smart factories, self-driving cars and robotic surgery among the many examples of where the technology may be applied.
Why Should You Invest Now?
Basic factory robots have been around for 40 years already but in the past they have been limited by their relatively high costs and restricted capabilities. However a continued rise in computing power along with a fall in computing costs have meant that robots today are faster, more flexible and cheaper than ever before.
