Google and the Next Generation of RobotsPosted: December 5, 2013
Amazon has gotten a lot of buzz about their delivery drones the last week, and we’ve heard that both FedEx and UPS are also working on time. Meanwhile, over at the Google Skunkworks, the ‘don’t be evil’ company is working on revolutionizing robotics for industry. Since summer, Google has bought up 7 tech companies in their quest to build the next generation of robots. These machines would be geared to electronics assembly lines and supply chains, so don’t expect Terminator type ‘bots. Businessinsider.com says Google’s robotics division will be based in Palo Alto, with a satellite office in Japan.
