According to market research firm MarketandMarkets research, it is predicted that the Internet of Things robot market in 2020 will exceed $20 billion, or have the opportunity to reach $21.44 billion.
A few years ago, we used high-frequency behaviors such as social, shopping, travel, and learning, relying on online platforms to achieve simple human-powered effects. Now that the Internet has already got rid of the exclusive endorsement status of the "online world", the concept of IoT, 5G and other impacts, we can not only obtain data and services, all kinds of entities are infiltrated, our way of life is constantly Transform to a new form.
Throughout the development process, the most anticipated is the mechanical life. When the plot in a science fiction movie is no longer a science fiction, the robot is given a "digital heartbeat" and becomes a coexisting partner with human beings. Can you perceive such a world?
IoT (The Internet of Things) refers to real-time collection of any monitoring, connection and interaction through various information sensors, radio frequency identification technology, global positioning system, infrared sensor, laser scanner and other devices and technologies. The object or process collects various information such as sound, light, heat, electricity, force, chemistry, biology, location, etc., through various possible network accesses, realizing the ubiquitous connection between objects and objects, objects and people. Intelligent perception, identification and management of items and processes.
Therefore, IoT robots can be understood as the integration of the two technologies of the Internet of Things and robots. The robots use the data of the Internet of Things to conduct mechanical interactions, and can make decisions and take the required actions. Sensors, cameras, and actuators that are non-porous are embedded in the environment, ensuring real-time access to and collection of up-to-date data information without human intervention.
For example, the robot can effectively act as a guide. Through the information receiver in the parking lot, the robot quickly and clearly identifies the available parking space information to help the driver find a suitable parking place. And heavy and repetitive work, such as warehouse management, robots can obtain product information, check product quality, help with delivery and inventory management.
Earlier, the British "Daily Mail" reported that Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, has enabled shelf robots in some stores in California. It is reported that the shelf robot can complete the scanning of the shelf every 90 seconds, which is 50% higher than the human work efficiency. Wal-Mart executives also pointed out that new robots will be added to clean, unload cargo and inventory follow-up to optimize operations and cut costs.
It can be seen that the Internet of Things robot has been slowly applied, and there is no limit to the field involved. The only thing that is limited is our imagination.
