Autonomous Mobile Robots
Autonomous mobile robots perform informed and un-coerced tasks with an extreme level of precision. Autonomous mobile robots function in fields such as household cleaning & maintenance, space flight, delivery of goods & services, and waste water treatment. Usually, autonomous mobile robots exist as a separate entity in an industry, but within the stringent confines of the direct environment. This is due to the fact that for an industrial autonomous mobile robot, the factory workplace is challenging to function in as the processes are likely to contain chaotic and unpredictable variables.
Currently, companies are focusing on developing a unique autonomous mobile robot that can determine the type of terrain & environment and function accordingly. This autonomous robot would be able to cope with its surrounding environment, be it on land or underground, in water, or air. This autonomous mobile robot would also have self-learning capabilities. For instance, manufacturers are offering autonomous mobile robots that function as lawn mowers, which adapt to the speed of growth of the grass. Moreover, some vacuum cleaning autonomous mobile robots have dirt detectors that sense the quantity of dirt and accordingly calculate the time in which the dirt will be picked up.
Autonomous Mobile Robots Market: Drivers and Challenges
There are various factors that drive the demand for autonomous mobile robots. A fully functional autonomous mobile robot can gain precise information about the environment surrounding it and functions accordingly without any governing force. This factor will enable the global autonomous mobile robots market to boom during the forecast period. Autonomous mobile robots possess the ability to function for an extended time period without any human intervention. In addition, without any assistance, autonomous mobile robots move around in their operational environment by avoiding collisions and damage to people, property or themselves. These factors are expected to drive the global autonomous mobile robots market. Autonomous mobile robots have a number of environmental sensors embedded in them, which enhance their operational ability and make them less vulnerable to self-damage. Thus, factors such as self-maintenance, sense of environment and autonomous navigation are expected to propel the global autonomous mobile robots market.
However, autonomous mobile robots are very expensive. Small and medium enterprises cannot afford to invest in autonomous mobile robots due to heavy initial expenditure and high maintenance costs. Also, lack of awareness regarding the technology for autonomous mobile robots hinders the growth of the global autonomous mobile robots market.
