Focusing our services capabilities on the Robot Sector

For a long time the term “robot” was synonymous with industrial robots used in factories to perform tasks such as welding, painting, assembly and transport. Nonetheless, service robots used for a range of daily life applications like cleaning, protection or guest reception have also started appearing in recent years.

Service robots that compensate for the lack of labor caused by factors such as the declining birth rate and aging population are projected to see a significant increase in potential usage. According to the Japan Patent Office, the global market is expected to exceed JPY 4.1 trillion by 2020, while the Japanese domestic market alone is expected to grow to JPY 3.6 trillion by 2030, as reported by NEDO.

Unlike traditional robots limited to industrial applications in factories, service robots are at work in a wide range of everyday settings, making it necessary to ensure safe operation and compliance with various situations that may arise from human communication.
