Dear Friends,

It’s easy to watch a classic show like The Jetsons, with its flying cars, automatic meal machines, and slightly sarcastic robo-maids, and think that the age of sophisticated robotics is still well into the future. But in actuality, that time is now. Sure, we’re a ways off from flying cars, but smart robots are already among us. Look around - as you read this at home or in the office, is there a little robot whose job is to monitor for crumbs and spills? Or how about the fancy new coffee machine in the break room that can make anything from a non-fat soy latte to a triple chocolate frappuccino with the perfect cream-to-sugar ratio? Robots are being used in every industry from healthcare to the military, manufacturing, to food preparation. And business is booming! According to an article published by Vox, in 2017, the value of industrial robots worldwide was estimated at $14 billion, with that number expected to rise by the year 2025. We’re living in an age of early driverless cars, robotic replacements for vital limbs, and washing machines that can automatically limit water usage based on load size. We may not have reached Jetson-levels of robotic futurism, but it’s safe to say, we’re well on our way. 

So what does the more present future hold for robotic innovations? Find out THURSDAY as we team up with MathWorks to bring you Robotics Connect 2019

We'll see you at the Café!
