Definition[edit | edit source]

Agile robotics defines

a broad array of next-generation, intelligent, oftentimes mobile devices, vehicles and machines that reduce the need for human attention, interaction and intervention in repetitive, dangerous and inaccessible places. Agile robotics systems utilize integrated sensing and computing technologies to perform complex, high level tasks remotely and automatically.[1]

Overview[edit | edit source]

"Tasks that an agile robot might perform include filling prescriptions, delivering supplies or vacuuming a carpet in a wide range of defined, yet dynamic environments, like hospital corridors, warehouse floors and people's living rooms. Collectively, such solutions constitute a new and emerging sector of the overall, worldwide robotics industry."[2]
