The technology situation for robotics has greatly improved in the past five to 10 years. This has created more widespread availability of good quality, low cost sensors (e.g., depth cameras, GPUs, etc.) that can be used in automation and robotics solutions. Tremendous growth in the commercialization of robotic arms, industrial and more recently collaborative versions, including those that are of appropriate size and cost for each-picking usage, has also spurred growth in this area, according to Vince Martinelli, Head of Product at RightHand Robotics.
