Expectations for robotics have been increasing recently as a means of solving societal issues such as Japan’s decreasing birthrate and aging population. The IoT era will see growing potential for the creation of new service markets driven by robotics technology operating in real space using various types of information and knowledge collected in cyberspace. To help promote the creation of new service businesses through collaborative creation with customers, Hitachi developed EMIEW3 (a new type of human-symbiotic robot), and a robotics IT platform that enables remote robot intelligence processes as well as remote operation monitoring and control of multiple robots in multiple locations. By drawing on these technologies and performing trials jointly with customers, Hitachi is working to create a new service robotics business, while aiming to provide digital solutions that utilize the data collected by robots.
