Robotics as a Service

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 report is to describe the state of RaaS, highlighting salient trends in a way that provides context, outlines key takeaways, and strategic industry guidance.

The Boston Robotics Summit: The U.S. Robotics Community Showcases Breakthroughs in Mobility, Increased Optimism, and the Underlying Strength of the Industry

2Q 2018

ABI Research was present at the inaugural Robotics Summit and Showcase in Boston. The aim of this foresight is to take in the trends highlighted in the summit, and evaluate where this leaves the wider commercial robotics industry. The greater Boston area is a key hotspot for American technological innovation and for robotics in particular. Alongside companies dedicated to specific verticals, Boston Dynamics (of SoftBank Holdings) and Agility Robotics represent two attempts to expand the scope of robotic mobility and sophistication.

ABB And Kawasaki Form Strategic Alliance On Collaborative Robotics

4Q 2017

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.

Webinar

Robotics as a Service is the Key to Unlocking the Next Phase of Market Development

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?
