"While most people have come to accept the impact of robotics and automation within the industrial & manufacturing sectors, already a new age of robots is emerging in the home and office. These are robots that work with and for people in the workplace and at home. The difference between these robots and their industrial counterparts is that they are small, safe, inexpensive and are already all around us. More powerful technology and processing at lower costs coupled with general public demand and acceptance mean something compelling is happening in the world of People & Robots."
