Research and Markets Logo

The future of connected manufacturing will be systems that are remotely controlled, flexible, intelligent and adaptive. The combination of Cloud Robotics, 3D Printing, IoT and Virtual Twinning will enable a revolution in flexible, custom, distributed manufacturing. One of the important advantages of the Cloud Robotics market is the ability to make robotics and industrial automation equipment available to a much wider spectrum of users. One of the ways in which this is accomplished is via open APIs, which enable abstraction of the robotics control plane from the application user interface. This means that customers do not need to use proprietary user interfaces for robotic controllers.

Teleoperation represents the ability to operate equipment or a machine from a distance. A specific form of teleoperation involving remote control of a robot from a distance is referred to as telerobotics. Teleoperation and telerobotics are both supported by ICT infrastructure including broadband communications, sensors, machine to machine (M2M) communications, and various Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. Enhancements in wireless broadband are untethering teleoperation. Prior to 5G and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), Teleoperation is largely relegated to fixed communications connections. 5G and MEC will enable Teleoperation anywhere there is 5G coverage, enabling many new consumer and industrial automation scenarios involving robotics.

One clear area of improvement for industrial businesses will be teleoperation and telerobotics as various industries will leverage the ability to control real machines/equipment by virtual object through master controlling interfaces. This research sees teleoperation being transformed by Digital Twinning, which refers to the mapping of the physical world to the digital world in which IoT Platforms and Software are leveraged to create a digital representation of physical object or asset. The Digital Twin of a physical object can provide data about the asset such as its physical state and disposition.

The industrial 3D printer segment will be the largest segment through 2023. Applications and services facilitated by 3D Printing include prototyping, printing spare parts, and producing finished goods across many industry verticals including manufacturing, healthcare, electronics, consumer goods, automotive, aerospace, and many more. The fabrication, integration, and control of virtually any product is increasingly becoming digitized. This trend is accelerating as evidenced by recent surveys indicating that 3D Printing and other forms of additive manufacturing will have a positive impact, increase creativity and dramatically improve time to market, especially for certain goods and services.
