Heartland Robotics focuses on human-robot interaction in industry. Many believe that total autonomy is not going to be practical today or a few years down. We will need to work total with robots in a flexible way, in close proximity to use them effectively.
Here’s a quote from their website.
Robots will change the way we work.
They will have intelligence and awareness. They will be teachable, safe and affordable. They will make us productive in ways we never imagined.
Robots will reinvigorate industry and inject new life into the economy. Making businesses more competitive. Keeping jobs from moving overseas. Demonstrating the power of American ingenuity.
Robots will change how we think about manufacturing. And Heartland will change how we think about robots.
