The use of smart robotics tech is no longer confined to traditional sectors like manufacturing and automation as it is becoming a part of every business growth story with a diverse range of applications across multiple industries such as logistics, banking, retail, agriculture, healthcare and so on. The integration of smart robotics tech is expected to increase operational efficiency. According to an industrial source, by 2023, 40 percent of G2000 manufacturers will digitally connect at least 30 percent of their robots to cloud platforms improving operational efficiency. The robotics industry has also shown significant growth in the development of sensor technology attracting investors to invest in intelligent robotics enabled by AI (Artificial Intelligence). IoT (Internet of Things) is also making companies increase the demand for more smart machines and smart robots for personalizing user experience, improving productivity and ramp up efficiency.
The smart city of Milton Keynes hosted the first edition of the European Robotics League (ERL)- Smart Cities Robotic Challenge (SciRoc Challenge). Ten European teams met in the shopping mall of Centre:mk to compete against each other in five futuristic scenarios in which robots assist humans serving coffee orders, picking products in a grocery shop or bringing medical aid. This robotics competition aims at benchmarking robots using a ranking system that allows teams to assess their performance and compare it with others. The European Robotics League (ERL) was launched in 2016 under the umbrella of SPARC- the Partnership for Robotics in Europe. This pan-European robotics competition builds on the success of the EU-funded projects: RoCKIn, euRathlon, EuRoC and ROCKEU2.
The smart cameras of 2018 are getting smarter still. Startup Horizon Robotics has debuted a new HD smart camera that boasts serious artificial intelligence capabilities and can identify faces with an accuracy of up to 99.7 percent, the company claims.

Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are suffering the same fate as Gemini's hoping to foresee their future by watching Carl Sagan's "Cosmos." While Robotics and AI are often associated with one another, these two fields originate from entirely different disciplines. Read on to learn how companies like Tomahawk Robotics are leveraging these two different, yet complementary, technologies to solve important problems. Often used interchangeably, it is important for industry professionals to properly differentiate between these two technologies. The world of Computer Science claims AI as it relates to the computation, reasoning, and instruction within a computer operation.
