Revisualizing Robotics: New DNA for Surviving a World of Cheap Labor
Nearly 25 years after robotics became a field of study unto itself, this book examines the realities of robot use in industry, the home, institutions, and governmental organizations such as NASA. Arguing that the robotics industry is reaching an unfortunate technological dead end, the book calls for new applications of current technologies, moving forward from older, limiting, and limited approaches to robotics. With an optimistic tone, this text presents new views on how robotics can and should be integrated into technology and manufacturing contexts to increase productivity, quality, and safety.
