The next stage in robotic automation is here. Over the past two decades, robots— programmable machines that have the capability to sense, plan and act in order to perform physical tasks automatically—have received a substantial boost through investments, open source contributions, consumerization and standards development, resulting in a new range of commercially viable robotic applications.
Now a new generation of robots is emerging that can handle an increasing amount of variability, which allows them to navigate and complete tasks in less structured environments with more efficiency. Their applications include uses across industries like manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, retail and agriculture, all of them with proven track record in Costa Rica.
