Building robots is challenging. The robotics industry (industrial and consumer) is filled with tales of companies that have shut down development despite having realistic visions and the necessary funding. Successful robotics projects rely heavily on robot software to design parts and simulate performance.
Automation and Robotics
Automation and robots are two distinct technologies, but the terms are often used interchangeably. Together, they have transformed the manufacturing space. Formerly time-consuming duties are now fully automated with minimal operator input, and robots are taking over more labor-intensive and hazardous tasks from humans. So how are automation and robotics different, and how are they related?
