Robotic telepresence blends robotics, drones, and video into one category.
Robots are intelligent machines that can move around and act upon objects in the real world, either autonomously or via remote control. Devices can now move autonomously and have embedded video systems (screen, camera, microphone, and speakers) to allow people in other locations to participate in remote office activities, perform industrial inspections, and go into hazardous areas.
Use cases include general knowledge workers, manufacturing, military, healthcare, and others. Increasingly, cameras themselves are remotely controlled to provide robotic surveillance capabilities in scenarios involving physical security.
Workplace technologies have undergone tremendous convergence through cloud and mobile enablement. In 2018, technology will continue to focus on business outcomes. Cloud-based SaaS applications are easier than ever to develop, which is leading to a proliferation of offerings in different market segments and increased buying by end users (versus IT).
Technology is changing faster than ever. Today, Digital Transformation requires understanding how to leverage strategic technology trends and—due to cloud—putting them to work fast. Watch this on-demand webinar to see Aragon’s top technology trends for 2018 that you need to consider for a competitive advantage.
