Open-source resources are a valuable tool for many designers and developers that are struggling to succeed with their ideas. It is too easy to hit a brick wall of a lack of funds or ideas. Organizations like Open Source Robotics Foundation provide a valuable lifeline for developers big and small. Their numerous projects and resources can change the course of important projects in application development.
Who Are Open Source Robotics Foundation And Why Were They Founded?
Open Source Robotics Foundation is a non-profit organization made up of enthusiastic robotics experts and coders. Although the headquarters of this independent agency is in San Francisco, it classes itself as a global network. This is a small-scale enterprise either. The Foundation has links with everyone from first-time developers to Toyota’s research and development branch.
The goals of this organization are simple: to facilitate the continuous distribution of open-source software for the development of robotics projects. They focus on this open-source approach because of the potential for product development and education.…
Robotics is all about finding ways to use technology to improve the lives of others or discover new things. For many of us, this means developing new technology to make our lives much easier, especially within the home. Home robots may be part of our future.
We all want to save time and energy on tasks, or simply delegate them to an automated, intelligent machine. As technology develops, home robots are becoming more sophisticated in their abilities and more diverse.
Cleaning tools can function on their own. Yard work becomes much less of a chore. Security issues are easily resolved with greater peace of mind. The whole home is now monitored and controlled with ease. In the end, we will be able to use these robots to the whole day.…
Gone are the days when robots were merely seen as a distant technological dream. Today, robot technology is developing at an increasingly rapid rate. Indeed, the world saw the emergence of service home robots, like pool cleaning robots or robotic vacuum cleaners that can carry out jobs at home previously reserved for human beings.
Indeed, the service robots industry has grown by leaps and bounds. According to one market research, the global service robotics market is expected to grow to $15.69 billion by the year 2020.
While professional robots such as those used for industrial, medical and defense purposes generate the highest revenue, it is domestic/personal service robots that are rapidly gaining market share particularly regarding volume (units) sold. This is a clear indication that more homeowners are buying robots.
What Market Research Says about Domestic Robots
There are two distinct categories of domestic service robots; household service robots (such as those homeowners use to clean, mow or enhance their home security) and personal service robots (such as those used for entertainment, education, handicap assistance and other personal care services).…
Robots now come in many shapes and sizes, for many functions. There are cute ones, and there are serious ones. There are ones with important roles in defense and healthcare, and there are strippers and hitchhikers and with no real purpose.
Then there are all the humanoids, bears, dogs and other creatures in between that are trying to use robotics to help. The breath of robotics allows companies to continue developing robots that really can make a difference.…
Robotics For Home Assistants
The world of robotics has opened the door for many interesting tools in many applications. Robots, whether simplistic or humanoid, have the potential to change many industries. This ranges as far as healthcare and surgery to manufacturing and customer service. In the end, most consumers are still waiting for that perfect robot butler or maid. Home assistant robots are highly desirable and now come in many forms.…
