Automation is bringing a transformation across industries. It has resulted in chatbots that offer a new way of interacting with self-driving cars and software. This is possible with the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that can handle complex human tasks. These advancements have also led to the development of robots.
In an attempt to democratise robotics and make it available at workplaces, London-based Automata Technologies has come up with a tabletop robotic arm called Eva. It is priced at £4,990 (nearly €5,800) and is an affordable and compact alternative to the large robots that are used in the manufacturing of cars costing tens of thousands of euros.
