Factories manufacturing robots are in many countries. The intention to launch a project to create battle mechanisms in 2017, said even members of the Russian Foundation for advanced research. Anyway, leader in the production of robotics remains China. Local companies produce robots not only for your country but for sale to the organizations from other parts of the world. According to Reuters, China will be another robotic factory, where robots will work side by side with people.
The new plant will be built by Swiss company ABB, which produces a variety of equipment ranging from electrical equipment to industrial robots. Location will be the area near campus robotics company in Shanghai, as China is the second most important market after the USA ABB. For the construction of the facility has been allocated 150 million dollars.
The area of the future plant will be about 7 000 square meters. It will be equipped with special software, which will enable industrial robots to work alongside humans. For assemblies of small parts are involved, robots YuMi, one of which is in 2017 acted as a conductor in a human Symphony orchestra.
The robots will be made for use in China and for import into other Asian countries. According to ABB, in 2017, one-third produced the robot went to China. In total, the country has acquired 138 000 units of robotic mechanisms. High demand is associated with the rise in the labor force — many companies are trying to automate the process.
Robots perform human tasks now. In may 2018 the streets of the Californian city of mountain view began to drive robotic couriers company Starship Technologies. In June, coffee Cafe X San Francisco appeared robots for coffee.
