You may have seen walking humanoid robots before, such as Honda’s ASIMO robot or Boston Dynamic’s Atlas. But with the latest developments in technology, today’s humanoid robots can do more than walk and pick up boxes—they can also perform backflips. Below is a viral video of a robot doing a backflip on YouTube:
Building Automation Systems are the next step in the increase of automation in the workforce. It only makes sense to utilize technology in order to make the work of running a building or home a little easier. The numbers reflect the desire for it too.
In spite of the uncertain fate of NAFTA, the world’s largest free-trade agreement between Canada, the United States, and Mexico, Canada’s tech sector continues to thrive. Some may point to the nation’s favourable immigration policies used to attract highly-skilled foreign workers, while others point to factors like infrastructure, political stability, or a favourable taxation climate as primary reasons for this boon. Whatever the case may be, Canada is becoming a world leader in tech.
The automation industry is growing at a rapid pace, with the market predicted to expand even more so, within the next 10 years. As industries move toward and implement processes that align with robotics, automation is the clear way of the future. Industrial automation enables businesses to streamline their manufacturing and operation processes with accuracy and speed.
Robotics and automation can seem inaccessible at times to the vast majority of the population. There is this illusion that it is kept separate from everyday people and limited to science labs or high-tech industries. This is not the case though, and there are a number of companies working on products that will bring automation to your own home. They are hoping to revolutionize the way people relate to their homes and make living more convenient and efficient for everyone.
Everybody knows that the job market is a rough place these days. Whether you’re young and fresh out of school, hitting close to retirement, or are not even close to leaving the workplace, the changing workplace can be difficult. This is especially true for the world of manufacturing, which has been hit particularly hard over the past few decades, with many factories across developed nations around the world shutting their doors for good.
When people think of automation and robotics they often assume that it is out-of-sight and operating in a lab or warehouse far away. But the truth is that they might be coming to your streets very soon. Self driving cars sound like something straight out of a science fiction novel to most people, but these machines will most likely be on the roads within the next couple years.
