Global trends in cost oriented autonomous robot market [1.89 mb]
Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

The Robotic market is broken down into different segments such as industrial, domestic service, professional service, military, security, space applications and etc. which industrial applications currently have the largest market. The study of interactions between human and machines is an important aspect in the adoption of control technologies involving both technical issues and social implications. Human-machine studies consider all conditions, where humans (individuals as well as groups) use, control or supervise tools, machines or technological systems. As engineering science gets better and better, life will get easier too. The latest trends in 'robotic intelligence' are towards imitating life.

Biomimetic robots, evolutionary robots, emotion controlled robots are just some new research ideas. Although these approaches are very different in their nature all have a common goal, to improve the adaptivity and learning capabilities of robots, 'breeding' a new generation of robots with better 'survival' chances in their specific operational environment. But still the biggest challenge in robotics markets for the next decade will be to find the proper balance between human-assisted systems and fully autonomous ones, thus to combine high technological capabilities with social expectation and low cost requirements. The main goal of my thesis is to explore demands of robotic market (pull and push technology), new trends and technologies of robots and main poles of robotic market across the world. The impacts of robotics in engineering which will help to accelerate the global trends in this field will be described and demonstrated. The latest advances in robotic market, humanoid robot trends, new opportunities, related works and future research directions and visions in this special field are evaluated and presented.
