Interaction design principles studied at Willow Garage could lead to wider service robot adoption. Could it make robots so commonplace that we stop noticing them?
Human-robot interaction has guided the robot design of three very different products created people who worked at Willow Garage.
The Willow Garage R&D lab and incubator has influence the robotics industry beyond its commercial spinoffs. Let’s take a look at its work on human-robot interaction.
Japanese manufacturing is already heavily automated, but deep learning startup Preferred Networks is working on IoT and automation without relying on the cloud.
Traditional manufacturing is already aware of robotics and AI, but industrial transformation requires companies to look for new ways to apply the technology. See how one Japanese startup hopes to lead the way.
