Robotics has visibly transformed industries. Today we have John Crupi, Chief, Autonomous Environmental Robotics at Kick Analytics, LLC with us to talk about how robotics and analytics are emerging. John explores what would be the future trends for the companies with automation software and the challenges without these technologies and automations.
Robotics and analytics are connected. Anything that can move and have mechanical parts to function is robotics. Sensors in terms of robots are taking readings from raw data, performing the analysis and telling us what is happening now and happened in the past? So merging robotics and analytics is not just looking at a point in time, it’s looking at things all the time.
Industry 4.0 is a next phase of industry. Being able to take this secure environment, operate it securely and put it in a way where organizations are comfortable is a massive task. In order to exchange data and apply analytics to robotics, manufacturers need to have quite a lot of resources and knowledge.
Risk and security are the key challenges while merging robotics and analytics. The manufacturers need to have enough insights about analytics, and architectures to integrate the analytics across robots.
Robots move and do things that can be dangerous but being able to have the analytics as a part of them and their infra helps to reduce the risks associated with them, providing the company or person with control.
