In this report, Technavio highlights the improvements in hardware-related drawbacks as one of the key emerging trends in the global hospital logistics robots market:
Improvements in hardware-related drawbacks
In mobile robot platforms, efficiency is lost due to the increase in nonproductive time when they often get stuck in traffic on the floor. Players in the market provide fleet management software with dashboards that can help in the visualization of paths for traffic management and path planning. To increase efficiency in movement, players are expected to introduce offerings that can enhance map updates and plans through the incorporation of real-time modifications in the plant layout.
“To increase the efficiency of current offerings, improvements are required in object recognition, categorization, and measurement. Players are incorporating ultrasonic, sonar, and light detection and ranging sensors to enhance obstacle avoidance and detection. This is expected to improve sensing and navigation systems further. Multiple sensory inputs for decision-making in real-time environments will be used in the coming years. Players are incorporating sensors that improve positioning capabilities of mobile robot platforms. They are using the simultaneous localization and mapping technology that uses sensor fusion and point cloud processing for improved mapping of the robot's environment. They are also equipping their mobile robot platforms with IMUs and wheel encoders to improve applications in outdoor environments,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on robotics.
