Top 25 Robot Trends in March

From Low-Tech Robotics Kits to Robot Warehouse Workers

— March 24, 2018 — Tech
Robotics technology is becoming increasingly advanced, as bots can now be found everywhere from the backs of warehouses to the fronts of cafe service counters, as the top March 2018 robot ideas show. Beyond the retail environment, robots also have a part to play across a number of highly varied industries. In the world of real estate, Restb.ai leverages an image recognition system to automate the appraisal process of listings. Robots are also now being used to fill in for news anchors on TV and assist with the growth of plants within the agricultural sector.

At the New York Toy Fair, a number of new robot toys were introduced for kids, including ones that facilitate smart interactions and others that teach the basics of programming and robotics.
