What’s Driving High Demand for Robot Control System across Regions?

“Evolution of the Artificial Intelligence technology to support demand for robot control system”

Artificial intelligence (AI) is used in robot controllers to enable robots to process and adapt to their environment. It can be programmed to perform specific tasks, such as climbing hills, swimming, and others. The technology is relatively new and has been tested in several areas such as the military.

Since development of robots, ground and airborne robotic weapons have advanced in technology and entered the realm of modern combat. Robots in the transitional stage of development were remote control by human and were semi-automatic. The capabilities of military robots are improved as a result of advances in sensors and processing. A.I. technology has been evolving since the middle of the 20th century, and also in the 21st century, it has been applied to warfare.

Robots sent into space are self-controlled and self-sufficient. Robots are in constant communication with scientists and engineers on Earth to enable data collection and controlled research. These things are efficiently possible due to the appropriate control system used in the robot. Therefore, the implementation of advanced A. I technology in the robot control system will lead to the impressive growth of the market by the end of the forecast period.

“Extensive utilization of robots in the chemical industry to propel the market growth”

For chemical manufacturers, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) solutions can help automate data extraction, quality inspection, and supply chain planning. Additionally, by implementing AI to automate tasks, chemical industry professionals can accelerate the process of discovering new ingredients, compounds, and vaccines.

The importance of timely quality assurance is paramount in the chemical industry. Chemical product quality assurance is primarily ensured by computer vision. Computers utilize deep learning algorithms to scan objects or materials on the production line and evaluate and classify them on the basis of their properties.

Chemical companies are using robots to clean manufacturing facilities to minimize human exposure to toxic substances. Context-aware robots can also improve logistics efficiency and reduce the time it takes to move raw materials and finished goods between parts on a production line. Owing to the upsurging chemical industry and the use of robots in it, robot control systems will have a huge demand in the upcoming years.

What Do Robot Control System Manufacturers Need to Watch Out?

Limited features offered by robot control system can hamper its market growth

Generally, robots are classified into servo and non-servo robots meaning robots having closed loop and open loop systems respectively. The servo robots are considered intelligent robots as their closed-loop system sends the feedback signals back to the system.

These robots are upgraded based on the limitation of the non-servo robots that could send the signals back to the system. Both of these systems also have certain other limitations like the absence of advanced sensors, limited programming, and hence the functionality of the robots, and others. The manufacturers are developing new methodologies to overcome the restrain and maintain consistency in demand.

Which Type of Robot Can Have High Sales by the End of the Forecast Period?

Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) travel around the production facility and make decisions considering real-time. Technologies such as cameras and sensors help gather information about the surroundings. On-board processing equipment aids them to analyze and make certain decisions regarding choosing the right package or choosing the right surface to sanitize. They are mobile solutions that require only limited human input to complete a job.

Cobots (collaborative robots) are specifically designed to work with humans directly or indirectly. Other types of robots perform tasks independently or in strictly segregated workspaces, cobots share space with workers so they can accomplish more targets. They are commonly used to eliminate dangerous, or tedious tasks from daily routines. In some cases, cobots can act by learning in response to human movements.

Hence, from the aforementioned facts it can be concluded that both these robots have healthy growth as both of them have their own specialties. Therefore, the AMR will capture a market share of 28.9% in 2023 and reach a valuation of US$ 1.9 Bn.

How the Surging Electronics Industry Will Lead to Rise in Market for Robot Control System?

Both industrial robots and cobots are currently finding their place in the manufacturing of electronic products.
