AI word, since this year is very hot. The state has adopted policies , increase investment in human and material resources, to develop artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence applied to the field of manufacturing, a lot of force on the artificial intelligence research and development company at home and abroad. Also increased R & D investment in this area, and strive to win a share in the field of artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence in robotics applications are very widely used. The combination of artificial intelligence and robotics. Currently the most widely used is the robotic arm factory production line, it can replace some of the actions have regular operation. Such workers can completely replace some of the operations of the repeated operations. Since the concept of industrial robots such a fire. But why only a small number of large factories industrial robots deployed it. I think I can be analyzed from several aspects.
1. costly, difficult to spread the application of these industrial robots are now also belong to precision devices, require a relatively high level of technology, R & D investment is relatively large, so the cost of production out of the robot is very high, so under normal circumstances, no strong capital factories, industrial robots are difficult to deploy, even if reluctantly put, it is difficult to generate economic benefits. Because the pre-investment is too great, the latter also requires a great deal of funds to maintain, so many factories in general terms , the industrial robot or a gimmick, costly, will make many factory prohibitive. If you want to get industrial robots promote and popularize, it must reduce barriers to entry and reduce ongoing maintenance costs, otherwise the mainstream manufacturing workers now operate CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , will continue for a long period of time. 2. Different plants produce different needs of each plant each plant has its products, their production processes, may be different. If you want a robot to replace the workers say. So you need to plant different points of different customized robot, and each factory, there are different production processes, different production processes also need to be customized robot. This is not only the high cost of inputs, but also increases the difficulty of maintenance. Such an increase is entirely his own troubles, after all, the robot is a new thing, a number of large manufacturing enterprises, it can indeed improve efficiency, increase the precision, improved productYield. For some small and medium enterprises, these needs is not so obvious. 3. workers relative to the robot more flexibility than the plant, if put into the robot , it would have to invest human and material resources for maintenance. Whether you order more or less orders, regardless of your robot work or stops working, we need to take the appropriate places and resources. Also need to complete maintenance personnel. But the workers, we are more strong mobility, because workers have mobility, more orders, business is good, more than we can recruit workers for production. If fewer orders, we can hire some people less, so you can always maintain saturation factory. You can dynamically adjust the production costs. Robot is not the same, no matter what your business is good or bad, robots need to continue to point the cost of inputs. 4. The robot is not yet able to mass instead of the workers I think it is very important. Robots are developed by us humans, he can only follow our procedures or actions set to perform. In the real work, a lot of action or operation is to go through human thinking and operating. This involves people’s thinking. This is the thinking of robots is difficult to substitute. Of course, robots are now slowly developing into artificial intelligence. Also have a certain ability to learn, but in the end can not be compared with humans, many still need to rely on manual operation to complete. Although the summary of artificial intelligence robot relatively rapid development, but in many application scenarios there is still no substitute for artificial. Due to the high cost of inputs, medium and small factories do not, this is not riding past the threshold. Therefore, the current operation is still the mainstream of the factory workers. But with the development of science and technology, the robot will slowly replace the part of human work. This will also free up a lot of labor. Some might consider that if human work is replaced by the robot , then the workers are not unemployed yet? In fact, from that point, we do not have to worry about. If robots can replace humans to do some heavy work, then we can free up more workers labor to the point. Do something to create more value. The current situation, many plants prefer to move their factories to some of the least developed countries, to reduce production costs, no majorArea of the popularity of industrial robots.
