Intellectual technologies and robotics
Nowadays robotics is one of the most rapidly developing areas of science and technology, enhancing the efficiency of production processes and competitiveness of industrial enterprises. The significance of robotics development both in Russia and abroad lies in its impact on other industries. In absolute terms the volume of deliveries of robots is inferior to other segments of the market of high technologies. But already in the nearest future development of robotics will have a dramatic impact on labor productivity, quality and accuracy of the operations. According to experts’ opinion the introduction of robots into the world economy will grow at 5 % annually. Robots are actively used in the defense industry, in medicine, in processing, packaging and logistics, automotive industry, etc.
