Robots aren't just making the lives of humans easier, they are also improving the quality of life for cows. A robotic milker has been developed to fully automate the cow-milking process. A trained cow can mosey on up to the machine whenever she feels the need, rather than only once a day, which decreases her discomfort, and increases milk production by up to 20%.
Implications - Robots have become increasingly more common within large corporations who need to fill massive quotas of product regularly. These robots take over the role of a human and perform and produce quickly and efficiently. Companies who are looking to increase their efficiency and profits may consider incorporating robots into their production lines.
