Exoskeletons: an overview of the market
The consultory ABI Research confirms that the potential market of the exoskeletons for comercial and industrial use actually surpasses 2,6 millions of units in the world, with technologies that are able to endure the weight of the standing and crouching body being the most common. This figure contrasts with the total number of units of exoskeletons sold within the past few years.
Drone regulation in Spain: urban areas & night flights
The 15th of December 2017 the Spanish Government approved the new regulation on drones. From now on it will be allowed to fly in urban areas and over crowds of people, upon approval of AESA (Spanish Aerospace Security Agency). The drone technology is constantly improving and is being implemented in different fields. That is why it is necessary to incorporate regulations to expand the number of environments where it is possible to fly UAVs.
The challenges in Industry 4.0
The concept of Industry 4.0 can be understood as a new way of organizing the production resources.
The ultimate goal is to launch a large number of “Intelligent Factories” capable of adapting to the needs of the market and production processes in a way more effective way, thus making a more efficient allocation of resources.
The concept of “artificial intelligence” was introduced in 1956 to define the possibility of implementing reasoning and self-learning capabilities into robotic system. It is not necessary to go to utopian visions of science fiction to confirm that Industry 4.0, the so-called fourth industrial revolution, has already begun to transform production systems through smart technologies’ platforms.
Examples of applications of Artificial Intelligence
Chatbots are systems capable of interacting with humans
that function as virtual assistants. Surely you know Siri. Chatbots can be used as assistants during purchase processes, for educational projects or as pre-filters to refer queries to human advisors. The uses at our disposal are infinite, increasingly sophisticated and personalized, aiming to recreate human-like communication.
