Why Service Robots?

Although the service robotics market today may look much smaller than the traditional industrial robots market, the fields of application of service robots are much wider.

 

In fact, service robots are forecasted to overtake their industrial counterparts within the next five years: significantly impacting the global economy and the future of work.

 

At GlobalDWS, we believe that now is the time to further explore the potential application of service robotics and be pioneers in this emerging field.
