The year of living autonomously:
Having nearly a week’s distance from CES event we’ve all had some time to reflect on its emerging trends.
Some of the key things the robotics world can take away from CES 2022 include:
- Automotive is going to continue to be a key driver
- Agtech continues to be one of the major categories to watch.
- More babysteps for home robotics.
According to Reuters, the company has delayed initial production of its futuristic SUV to early 2023. The report cites one person familiar with Tesla’s plans.
The cancellation of Tesla’s Cybertruck is a major blow for Big Tech. The Cybertruck was meant to challenge other heavy-duty electric vehicles like the Rivian R1T and F-150 Lightning.
The Cybertruck presented an opportunity to draw customers away from traditional gas-powered vehicles that were similarly priced.
Voice assistants have several decades of history. But it wasn’t before 2011, when Apple introduced Siri, that they became widely available. Since then, the market has been growing rapidly.
Thanks to the likes of Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant, voice tech has seen a huge rise in the past decade. But the voice assistant industry has yet to reach its full potential and it can become an integral part of many applications we use every day.
In the next few years, we will see the advent of new markets, applications, and platforms for voice assistants that will go beyond the reach of the incumbents.
