33 Robotic Innovations

From Autonomous AI-Powered Security Robots to Customization Task Robots

— October 9, 2019 — Autos
Robotic innovations continue to provide more ways that robots can be incorporated into human life. Often times robotic innovations can automate different tasks that were formerly performed by people. SMP Robotics has created a 'S5.2' security robot that can automate security tasks. The robot is powered by AI and can operate completely autonomously.

The 'Vegebot' is a harvesting robot that was created by engineers from the University of Cambridge. The robot was designed to increase harvesting speeds through automation. This results in a vastly more efficient harvesting process because the robot can use AI to determine optimal harvesting times.

Lastly, Boston Dynamics 'Spot' robot will soon be available to perform custom tasks. The robot is able to follow instruction, and perform different tasks, including transporting supplies. The robot can also be fitted with custom parts as necessary.
