TECH SUPPLIER Oct 2019 - Market Perspective - Doc # US45593819
Impacts of Technology and Business Model Advancements on Robotics and Autonomous Vehicles
This Market Perspective examines some of the similarities and mutualistic benefits resulting from the intertwined developments in the areas of commercial robotics and autonomous vehicles (AVs). In this way, members of each participant ecosystem can leverage these relationships to further maximize their R&D investments to deliver capability improvements, power consumption optimization, and marketability, while reducing costs and time to market. In particular, IDC will focus on two key areas: the impacts of this mutual technology advancement and the influence on business and operating models.
"While robotics and autonomous vehicles evolve in different environments, with different constraints, there is a common technological set of building blocks fully applicable to both domains," said Matt Arcaro, research manager, Next Generation Automotive at IDC.
"In fact, the complexity of each challenge, along with the sheer potential applicability of these technologies, regularly drives the ecosystem to develop new, advanced solutions. For instance, think how AI-based vision systems for AVs can be repurposed to add additional precision and capability for autonomous mobile robots," added Remy Glaisner, research director, Worldwide Robotics at IDC Insights.
