The companion robotics market is set to expand rapidly. In response to this expected growth , Grenoble INP laboratories have launched several projects to design humanoid robots.
A recent study* by Xerfi highlighted the high potential growth of the robotics industry. In particular, the companion robotics market is expected to experience strong growth until 2020. Whether it is robots for senior home care monitoring or babysitter robots that can play with your kids or check their homework, the possibilities are endless. Several laboratories in Grenoble are working on designing robots that are capable of perceiving, deciding, acting, interacting and communicating with humans.
