Despite businesses expressing huge interest in the use of robots, IDC reports that only 16 percent of businesses have currently deployed any robots, although that might be changing because about half now say that they have plans to deploy them or are currently considering the technology.
Types of tasks that robots that are being considered for include:
- Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in warehouses for order fulfillment
- Inventory counting
- Collaborative robotics
- Industrial Inspections
John Santagate, research director at IDC, said that “the key thing to remember, is that these robots are taking on tasks. So if there is a task that is dull, dirty, or dangerous and can be physically completed by a robot, it makes sense to explore the option.”
