In the weeks leading up to the competition, students design and programme their robots while following a set of pre-determined rules and regulations. These robotics tournaments, like traditional sporting events, attract enormous crowds eager to see which robot will achieve the task set before it.
A robotics club is a group of students that are passionate about robots and want to learn more about them. Robotics clubs at school are often held after school in a classroom and are moderated by a member of the teaching staff or the school administration.
Robotics teams work with children of all ages, beginning in kindergarten and continuing through college and post-graduate degrees. The same may be said for individuals who wish to create a coding club or any other type of youth group.
Robotic soccer championships such as RoboCup and FIRA, as well as contests for unmanned vehicles such as the DARPA Grand Challenge, the European Land-Robot Trial (ELROB), and the International Aerial Robotics Competition, are among the most well-known robotics events today (IARC).
Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI)
The national association of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) (formerly the American Artificial Intelligence Association) was founded in 1979 and is a non-profit research society committed to promoting the research understanding of the processes underlying reasoning and intelligent behaviour and their software embodiment. AAAI seeks to encourage study on artificial intelligence and the ethical application of it.
AAAI also strives to expand public awareness of artificial intelligence, enhance the education and instruction of AI professionals, and offer input on the importance and potential of existing AI technologies and possible paths for research developers and funders.
IEEE Robotics and Automation Society
IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, one of the most well-known global organisations in robotics and automation, works to improve the theory and practise of robotics and automation engineering for the benefit of its members and mankind. Its goals are scientific, literary, and educational in nature.
It assists its Members and Affiliates in encouraging close collaboration and the sharing of technical knowledge, and to that purpose, it conducts meetings for the presentation and debate of papers, sponsors suitable journals, and publishes technical publications.
International Federation of Robotics (IFR)
The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) is a global organisation with over 20 nations represented. IFR serves as a key global repository for robotics data, bringing together experts and professionals from all over the world.
It is a nonprofit company that provides comprehensive market data for surveys, research, and statistics, as well as assisting firms in entering new markets. It was founded in 1987.
A rugby 7’s game will be played with two robots and five obstacles in the ABU Robocon 2020 Suva competition. How the two robots work together to score the Try and the Goal Kick is the game’s high point. Due to the distinctive form of the rugby ball, the primary and most difficult task of this game will be Goal Kick, which involves kicking the Kick Ball over the crossbar of the conversion post. If the robot achieves all of the goals, the audience will be mesmerised. We anticipate watching thrilling matches between original robots created by young, aspiring engineers in Suva, Fiji. This proposal serves as the foundation for ABU Robocon 2020 Suva, which aims to promote “Rugby 7’s.”
Red and Blue teams are playing a game. It lasts no more than three minutes. The Pass Robot (PR) and Try Robot are the two robots that each team owns (TR). Both of the two robots are manual and automated. The PR Start Zone is where the PR begins.
The PR selects one try ball from the ball rack and passes it to the TR who is in the receiving zone from the passing zone. When the PR throws the try ball, the TR goes from the TR Start Zone into the Receiving Zone. The TR then travels past the five opposing obstacles to reach one of the five try spots and score the try.
Robotic Industries Association (RIA)
The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) is a trade association based in the United States that was founded in 1974 to serve as a “central clearinghouse” for the exchange of technical and trade-related information between robot manufacturers, distributors, corporate users, accessory equipment and systems suppliers, consultants, research organisations, and international organisations.
RIA serves as a meeting place for these organisations to discuss issues and solutions related to the adoption of robot and vision automation technologies. RIA is the umbrella organisation for four specialised associations, all of which are based in Ann Arbor, Michigan:
Some human activities will be replaced by robots as their capabilities become more advanced, but not all. In unpredictable, human-dependent industries like construction and nursing, current robots technology can only automate 25% of jobs. Robots, on the other hand, rely on human programming and will continue to do so in the future.
Automated processes have already had a big influence. Despite the fact that more than 5 million factory jobs have been lost since 2000, manufacturing production in the United States has grown – by 16.7% between 2006 and 2013!
Curbing the COVID-19 involved using a variety of robot technologies, such as cleaning and disinfection service robots, during the period of 2021–2026. The global robotics market was valued at USD 27.73 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 74.1 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 17.45 percent. This new market for service robots was created by rising hygiene standards. Therefore, in 2020, a lot of firms filed new disinfection robots. There is a rising need for businesses that transport meals and other goods. In 2021, it is anticipated that there will be a global increase in the use of robots that carry food and medications as a result of this growing interest. The need for robots enabling last-mile delivery would likewise be driven by this desire.
We polled over 2,000 people to find out what industries they work in, how they think disruptions will affect their labour market, what they plan to do if directly impacted, how many people understand the concept of disruptive innovation, and how it will potentially impact their jobs in the coming years.
