IDC Innovators: Collaborative Robots, 2018
By: Jing Bing Zhang
IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue below US$100 million and have demonstrated a groundbreaking business model, an innovative new technology, or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles four notable vendors that are developing and manufacturing collaborative robots (cobots): AUBO Robotics, Franka Emika, JK-Tech Robotics, and Techman Robotics.
"Cobots are being increasingly deployed by many manufacturing and logistics organizations to increase operations efficiency, agility, and product quality," says Jing Bing Zhang, research director, IDC Worldwide Robotics. "With more and more vendors entering the market, it becomes imperative for vendors to focus on delivering highly differentiable and value-added solutions to address the pain points of the target customers," he adds.
