While they were still science fiction a few decades ago, robots are now part of our reality. In factories, in our homes or in hospitals, they are more and more present and more and more efficient. And for good reason, in the last fifteen years, robotics has been steadily progressing thanks to scientific research and technological innovations that are ever more sophisticated. In what areas is robotics mostly used today? And what future seems to be emerging for this sector? Let’s find out in this article.
A SECTOR OF EXPERTISE, MULTIPLE FIELDS OF APPLICATION
To date, robots are mainly used in industry where programmed to perform difficult and repetitive tasks, they ensure the manufacture of many products. However, robotics has spread to other areas, including medicine with the development of surgical robots, tools particularly useful for delicate operations. The domestic robot is also booming, offering consumers robots cleaning and maintenance: lawn mowers, vacuum cleaners, pool robots etc.
The robotics professions are thus expertise professions, which require very specific theoretical or technical knowledge, as well as a great ability to adapt this knowledge to a specific field (medicine, science, industry). On the one hand, engineers, roboticists, R & D technicians and programmers design robots. On the other hand, mechanics, production operators, and other production agents take care of their practical use. To this great variety of professions are added the professions of communication and marketing, for which it is also necessary to have knowledge in robotics.
THE FUTURE OF ROBOTICS: MORE AND MORE PROGRESS
The technological innovations of recent years open new perspectives in the development of robotics. Nanotechnology has thus allowed the emergence of microrobotics, which in the future should be very useful for medicine, especially for the manufacture of artificial organs and connected prostheses. Similarly, advances in artificial intelligence suggest that robots may soon be taking on more and more complex tasks.
In addition, robots have become indispensable tools for scientific research, making it possible to reach previously inaccessible areas. For example, space exploration and seabed discovery depend heavily on robots and their evolution. Robotics still has a bright future ahead of them.
