Predictions for the personal robotics market

Postby Markus Waibel on 03 Jul 2009, 08:28

According to a new study by technology research company NextGen the global personal robots market will grow from US $1.16 billion in 2009 to $5.26 billion in 2015.

The report predicts telepresence robots overtaking the toy robot market, with applications ranging from interaction between family members, remote monitoring of pets or second homes. It also foresees a large increase of telepresence in the medical field, with health personnel increasingly providing help from a remote location, with typical tasks including reminders to take medication on time, or guiding patients through blood pressure or blood sugar measurements.
