Robots have long been used in manufacturing and other industrial applications, but we are now seeing a shift towards increased use of robots in domestic applications. This is largely due to the decreasing cost of robotics technology and the increasing sophistication of robots. We can expect to see more robots in homes and businesses in 2018 as companies continue to develop innovative new applications for robots.
2. Increased Focus on Service Robotics
In addition to the increased focus on domestic robotics, there will also be a focus on service robotics in 2018. Service robots are those that are used to help humans with tasks that are difficult or dangerous for humans to do. Some common examples of service robots include surgical robots, robotic prostheses, and drones. Service robotics is a rapidly growing industry, and we can expect to see even more innovative applications in 2018.
3. Increased Use of Robotics in Small Businesses
One of the most exciting trends in robotics for 2018 is the increased use of robotics in small businesses. Robotics can be a great tool for small businesses because it can help them to automate tasks and processes that would otherwise be difficult or time-consuming. Robotics can also help businesses to increase efficiency and productivity. We can expect to see more small businesses adopting robotics in 2018.
4. Increased Focus on Robotics Education
Another trend that we are likely to see in 2018 is an increased focus on robotics education. With the rapid advancement of robotics technology, it is becoming increasingly important for people to have a basic understanding of robotics. Robotics education can help people to gain the skills they need to work with robots and to develop new applications for robotics. We can expect to see more robotics education programs in 2018.
5. Increased Focus on Robotics Research
Finally, we can expect to see an increased focus on robotics research in 2018. Robotics research is essential for the advancement of robotics technology. Robotics research can help to improve the design and functionality of robots, and it can also help to identify new applications for robotics. Robotics research is a rapidly growing field, and we can expect to see even more advancements in 2018.
