Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported, "A new wave of robots is coming - business leaders are more eager than ever to welcome them in a world that lacks labor," raising concerns both inside and outside the industry. According to the report, there is good reason to believe that robots will continue to develop given the chronic shortage of labour and demographic changes in the world as a result of labour aging and other factors.
Service robots are applied in a variety of scenarios
Categorized by the application fields of robots, it can be broadly classified into industrial robots and service robots, of which industrial robots are mainly manufactured by industrial users, while service robots are mainly used for personal, home and public issues. Compared with industrial robots, the application fields of service robots have been broadened in recent years, especially in education, medical rehabilitation and home service. Meanwhile, the types of service robots are increasing, including sweeping robots, mopping robots, stir-fry robots, companion robots.
According to the statistics, more than 1,000 companies worldwide are producing service robots, which is 10 times the number of industrial robotics companies. "At least 121,000 service robots had been installed in 2021, although that figure was certainly underestimated." says Dr. Susanne Bieller, the Secretary General of the International Federation of Robotics (IFR). Between 2020 and 2021, the number of service robots installed globally increased by 37% annually, which is higher than the average annual growth of 31% for industrial robots installed in the same period.
Intelligent development upgrades service robots
The rapid development of 5G, AI, and IoT further promotes the technology upgrade of the service robots industry, reducing costs and assisting in the continuous expansion of robots application fields.
At the same time, with the further development of robot intelligence and automation, manufacturers in the major segmentation of the robot's core parts supply chain have also explored with more refined technology, giving more possibilities to service robots. For example, in the field of robotic micro-drive, ZHAOWEI provides a joint motor solution with micro-drive module as the innovation point. The second, third and fourth stage drive changes of robotic joint gear can change the deceleration ratio and adjust the input speed and torque of the gearbox according to the design requirements of the robotic motor. In addition, through parameter optimization, the robotic joint gear can better meet the drive needs of the six-degree-of-freedom robot and the application requirements.
Driven by the factors such as the pandemic epidemic and global aging, service robots will usher in a qualitative change from function to intelligence, continuously upgrade and finally achieve large-scale application popularization in the whole society, helping mankind to accomplish more work and promoting the upgrades of industrial intelligence. It is believed that under the promotion of market, a number of robotics suppliers who own the global competence will emerge in the future to push the robot development in the directions of standardization, modularization, and systematization.
