The robotics sector is booming, creating a wealth of new opportunities in manufacturing, logistics and beyond. Today’s robots are able to identify and navigate their surroundings, work alongside humans and teach themselves the skills required to complete a new task. Though they are capable of doing more and more, robots are becoming easier and easier to operate. Outside the boundaries of their traditional workplace behind a safety fence, these robots are assisting in and enhancing a host of new and conventional applications.
All this wouldn’t be possible without semiconductor solutions. Whether in an industrial robot, a cobot or an automated guided vehicle (AGV), intelligent semiconductors are the key enabler for all major robotic functions, from sensing and motion control to functional safety to security.
