Soft Material Robotics
This report provides a detailed overview of the largely uncovered subset of the Robotics industry; namely Soft Robotics. This refers to robotics that are comprised of either soft materials, soft joints, or soft layers over hard armatures.
The report provides an introduction into Soft Robotics, including a definition and elaboration on various sub-types. It follows by exploring the novel capabilities that separate them from other robotic systems This report outlines two clear commercial opportunities; exoskeletons and grippers, and discusses some of the commercialization opportunities that are yet to be realized.Continue

Sebastian Thrun, a computer scientist who famously helped win the DARPA-funded autonomous driving challenge in 2005, recently announced that the online-learning platform Udacity, which he co-founded, was going to begin a 12 month course on flying cars. The Flying Car Nanodegree program will teach inductees the software skills and conceptual understanding necessary to build an autonomous flight system.
On November 27, 2017 , ABB and Kawasaki announced they would form a strategic partnership on sharing knowledge and promoting industry awareness about the benefits of collaborative robotics. The partnership comes at a time of considerable optimism regarding the present and future health of the collaborative robotics market. Collaborative robots are human scale systems that are easy to set up and program, are capable of being used by workers with a wide range of qualification levels, can support multiple types of automation, and can work safely near human workers.

Robotics as a Service (RaaS) originally was coined to describe the business model whereby robotic platforms functioned on cloud-platforms that were sold as a service to end-users. Now, RaaS represents one of the most notable phenomena in the development and diversification of commercial robots across an ever-expanding list of markets and use-cases.
The purpose of this presentation is to describe the state of RaaS, highlighting salient trends in a way that provides context, outlines key takeaways and provides strategic industry guidance.
The development of RaaS across of range of markets and through many companies will be described and evaluated. A central theme of RaaS is the promise of robotics being developed for an ever-wider range of use-cases, and this presentation will aim to educate members on the varied experiences of RaaS providers across markets, many of which had not previously seen significant robotic adoption.This webinar will address the following five questions:
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of RaaS (for end-users and providers?)
- What are the drivers and inhibitors behind the development of RaaS?
- What market verticals are likely to be most affected by RaaS?
- What are the forecasts for growth within the RaaS ecosystem?
- Which companies represent the potential of RaaS?
