In this episode, we talk with ANYbotics CCO Enzo Wälchli about the market and commercialization for ANYmal quadrupeds.
Robotics investment for May 2023 amounted to $686 million, the result of 61 funding rounds. Total robotics investment for January 2023 through May 2023 equals approximately $4 billion.
Inspection and service work in underground tunnels is the poster child for work that is “dirty, dull and dangerous”. It is also time consuming and costly. MAB Robotics is meeting the challenge with a compact, ruggedized, quadrupedal robot.
Softbank’s most promising robotics investments are not those targeting the experimental technologies, nor the massive funding rounds for self-driving vehicles, but rather the mid-range investments in mobile robots for industrial and commercial applications.
Swiss university ETH Zurich is been working on a walking robot prototype and perception using machine learning. Both technologies could help service robots catch on.
