By 2030, according to one report, 85 million jobs will go unfilled globally, having an economic impact in the trillions. One possible solution to address this pending issue is general-purpose automation, which is the ability to perform a wide range of tasks across different industry verticals and applications, with minimal human intervention. Over the past few years, there have been major improvements in the robotics industry:

  • Faster and more accurate navigation
  • Improved and cost-effective sensors and control solutions
  • Computational power for in situ data processing
  • Improved battery performance

For a world designed for the human hand, a high dexterity, near-human robotic hand, will allow the completion of a general-purpose automation solution.
