  3. 3. The Bot Market….<br /><ul><li>According to a report titled Robotics: Technologies and Global Markets- The global robotics market was estimated at $17.3 billion in 2008
  4. 4. That figure is estimated to rise to $21.4 billion by 2014
  5. 5. “Everybody who is consuming computing technology will want to consume robotics technology in some way in the coming decade” says the Brown University</li></li></ul><li> Well Known Robots…..<br />Honda’s - Asimo<br />Asimo is one of the best known robots today. <br />It has the trademark mechanical movements one has come to associate with robots. <br />This small humanoid can walk or run, and resembles an astronaut wearing a backpack. <br />
  6. 6. Well Known Robots…..<br />Pleo - A toybabydinosaur<br />Pleo is a hit with kids and adults alike. He reacts like a puppy when patted, and widens his eyes and wags his tail when delighted. <br />
  7. 7. Well Known Robots…..<br />Chalkbot— mobile street-printing robot.<br />Chalkbot has become so popular that he’s even being followed on Twitter.<br />
  8. 8. Well Known Robots…..<br />Roomba -the vacuum-cleaning bot<br />Once programmed, it will switch itself on, clean the house while you’re away and even plug itself in to get charged when required.<br />To date, over two million Roombas have been sold all over the world.   <br />
  9. 9. Marketing the key …<br />Robotics is still a big risk<br />Real growth will be led by start-ups<br />iRobot – Roomba marketing story<br />“Today’s robots are mostly like what mainframes were once to the computer industry,” says Brown University.<br />
  10. 10. Made In India<br />1996 - Birth of a multi-million dollar industry in South Korea. <br />This was soccer with a twist. <br />The players were not humans, they were robots. <br />The games were part of the first Federation of International Robosoccer Associations (FIRA) championship, which kicked off in Korea<br />
  11. 11. Made In India<br />I’m hoping the 2010 robosoccer event in Bangalore will encourage entrepreneurs and manufacturing in the robotics space.—Prof PrahladVadakkepat, Co-Founder, Federation of Int’l Robosoccer Associations<br />
  12. 12. Made In India<br />ThinkLabs, a robotics education start-up, got $1 million from Seedfund in early-2008. <br />ThinkLabs was incubated at the IIT Bombay campus at Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE) <br />

  19. 19. Domestic Robots<br />“Task robots and entertainment robots will be the major growth categories in personal robotics. Task robots are useful for repetitive tasks like vacuuming, cleaning your swimming pool, etc,” says Larry Fisher, Research Director, NextGen Research.<br />
  20. 20. Industrial Robots<br />Today, industrial applications comprise a majority of the robotics business. Last year, industrial robots commanded a market share of $11.5 billion. According to a report by BCC Research, this is expected to creep up to $12.1 billion by 2014.<br />
  21. 21. Doctor Bots<br />The price of the da Vinci system ranges from $0.7 million to $2.3 million, depending on the model and configuration. Yet, Intuitive Surgical—the $260 million-plus company that makes da Vinci—claims to have sold 1,171 units worldwide.<br />
  22. 22. The Soldiers<br />Packbot<br />Military robotics is the third-largest market segment in robotics. Last year, it generated $917 million in revenues, a figure that is expected to rise to $1.6 billion in 2014 <br />
  23. 23. Playmates<br />Prices as low as $20 for basic toy robots and about $100 for more advanced ones<br />Robosapien’s global sales of over 5 million units are a testimony to its immense popularity<br />About 100,000 units are expected to be sold in Christmas in US alone<br />
  24. 24. Lego Mindstormsnxt<br />Create the smartest, strongest and most advanced LEGO® robot ever, in as few as 30 minutes! LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT includes an all-new NXT Intelligent Brick with 32-bit microprocessor, 3 Interactive Servo motors, a sound sensor, an ultrasonic visual sensor, an improved touch sensor, and an improved light sensor. <br />
  25. 25. The Future …<br />Developments related to robotics from the 2030 report :<br />2013-2014 — agricultural robots (AgRobots). <br />2013-2017 — robots that care for the elderly <br />2017 — medical robots performing low-invasive surgery <br />2017-2019 — household robots with full use. <br />2019-2021 — Nanorobots<br />2021-2022 — Transhumanism<br />According to research commissioned by the UK Office of Science and Innovation&apos;s Horizon Scanning Centre , robots could one day demand the same citizen&apos;s rights as humans. The study also warns that the rise of robots could put a strain on resources and the environment.<br />
