The future of Internet of Robotics Things

The merger of robotics with the Internet of Things (IoT) is likely to define the future of robotics. The combination of two technologies together is known as the Internet of Robotics Things (IoRT), which will allow robot operators more controlling power over their equipment.

Reports suggest that several UK companies are adopting IoT with robotics, in order to bring about precision in the field of agriculture. For instance, sensors in the robots help in conducting more accurate and precise soil tests beyond the capacity of humans.

Moreover, the primary goal of IoRT is to replace humans from performing menial tasks such as helping crops grow, while also allowing farming benefits from robotic customization which can adapt machines to the ever changing agricultural conditions.

Additionally not only the agricultural, but also the industrial domain can benefit from the advantages of IoRT. For instance, the episode of 6 River Systems’s creation of warehouse robot called Chuck. Chuck can help in assisting the warehouse chores with inventory management at more than 6 warehouse locations. The robot also receives information based on a global network of IoT sensors which enables it to help understand the environment and avoid obstacles.

Vero Robotics also uses IoRT and is drawing efforts towards improving robotic controls with the help of IoT sensors. The company’s technology helps to collect and process data information from sensors in order to locate people in the vicinity.

An effective understanding of how to make these two technologies work together will help in bringing about new applications which will thus broaden the scope of the current use. However presently, skills shortage dominates the robotics market and reports allege that websites usually connect qualified engineers with appropriate companies and openings. Therefore, it is expected from the future and current robotic engineers that they navigate the job market in tandem with the background knowledge of IoT, which complements well with their robotic knowledge.

Additionally, consumer robots could foster market growth. Engineers for example could build homes that would work with the present IoT devices.
