Will Service Robots Enter Our Homes In 2020?

After Personal Computers And Mobile Phones Have Changed The Way We Live And Work, It Is Time For Service Robots To Reduce Our Burden In Completing Daily Tasks And Household Chores. Service Robots Will Substantially Add To The Existing Digital Ecosystem That Already Includes Smartphones, Smart Speakers, Smart Home Devices And Other Gadgets Assisting People. As Robots Are Now Promoted By New Technologies And Are Capable Of Learning New Skills, We Can Optimistically Expect Them To Enter Our Homes In The Year 2020.

Current Progress Of Service Robots

Modern Technologies Are Being Designed With The Purpose To Make The Lives Of People Easier. Robotics Has Got An Incredible Boost Due To The Advancements In Artificial Intelligence (AI), Computer Vision, Gesture Recognition And Controls, And Natural Language Processing. Robots Are No Longer Mechanical Arms Used In Assembly Lines And Other Factories That Can Do Primitive And Repetitive Work Like Fitting Screws And Painting Cars. They Are Ready To Enter Our Homes And Provide Very Diversified And Complex Services.

Humanoid Service Robots As Envisioned By Popular Sci-Fi Movies And Books AreBeing Developed By Many Global Corporations Including Amazon, Ubtech, Boston Dynamics And Others. These Contemporary Service Robots Have An Advanced Vision And Adroit Limbs To Handle Many Household Objects And Tools, Which Makes Them Suitable For Houses And Apartments. Also, Their Progress In Understanding The Surroundings, Communication With Humans And Accurate Movement In A Static Environment Are Fascinating. 

Future Opportunities And Ecosystem

AI-Powered By Machine Learning Will Help Service Robots To Take Correct Decisions In Real Time And Provide Better Services To Their Owners. They Will Be Able To Take Autonomous And Safe Decisions Without Any Direction From Human Beings. Autonomous Service Robots Can Perform A Range Of Tasks Such As Caring For The Elderly, Supporting Children With Special Needs, And Keeping Houses Clean. Service Robots That Can Assist Trained Professionals (I.E. Nurses And Teachers) Will Be Highly Demanded In Healthcare And Educational Establishments, As They Will Reduce The Amount Of Manual Labour. TheInternet Of Things (IoT) Will Make It Possible For Service Robots To Interact with Other Household Gadgets Like Refrigerators, Kettles, Washing Machines, Door Locks, And Control Their Functionality Saving Human’s Precious Time. Interestingly, The New Operating System By Google ‘Android Pie’ Can Power And Service Many Household Devices, And May Be Further Used To Interact With Service Robots.

Shape-Shifting And Particle Robots

Not All Of The Service Robots Will Necessarily Have A Humanoid Appearance. Some Of The Shape-Shifting Robots That Are Under Development Can Adapt Their Morphologies And Complete Tasks Such As Wiping The Floor And Cleaning Steps With The Same Level Of Dexterity As Humans. Researchers From MIT And Columbia University Are Developing Particle Service Robots That Can Perform Complex Tasks In Our Homes. Particle Robots Are Made Of Small Individual Robots, Which Can Push And Pull Each Other Organising Flexible Forms. This Innovation In The Field Of Robotics Took Its Inspiration From Biological Organisms And Have A Potential To Revolutionise Service Robots.

Businesses Are Now Facing The Opportunity Of Developing New Models Targeted At Households That Wish To Involve Serve Robots. According To The Market Research Company Frost & Sullivan, PersonalRobots Are Estimated As A $19 Billion Opportunity For The Year 2020. The Technology Giant Amazon Is Reportedly Developing A Service Robot That Is Codenamed ‘Vesta’. Amazon’s New Service Is Said To Offer Companionship To People And Complete Basic Tasks.

Human Beings Have Long Dreamt Of Service Robots That Would Become Trustworthy Companions And Complete Household Chores. The Recent Technology Advancements In AI, Speech Recognition And Robotics Look Very Promising To Bring Service Robots Into Our Homes As Early As In 2020. However, They Need To Be Programmed Properly And In Line With The Three Laws Of Robotics Developed By Isaac Asimov To Remain Helpful But Not To Harm People.
