Autonomous Robots are intelligent robots that can perform tasks independently without the requirement of human interference. Autonomous robots manipulate objects in their environment to achieve certain goals. Almost all kinds of robots have some degree of autonomy. The degree of autonomy in different robots is varied to a large extent. Fields that require robots with high degree of autonomy include space exploration where interruptions and communication delays are unavoidable. Robots with intermediate or low level of autonomy are used for more mundane tasks like cleaning, moving lawns and waste water treatment plants among others. Industrial robots also have certain level of autonomy although they work in confined and fixed environment in manufacturing processes. The number of applications of autonomous robots in manufacturing and production processes is constantly growing with the development in autonomous robots.
Research in robotics currently is focused on making robots aware of their surrounding which include land, underwater, in the air, underground, or in space. The first stage of autonomy involves self-maintenance which is based on proprioception which is as defined as the robot’s ability to sense its own internal status. Many battery powered robots currently can locate their charging station and charge themselves totally autonomously. Sony’s Aibo is one such example of self-docking robots. The later stages of autonomy include environment sensing and task performance. Autonomy in environments is achieved for both indoor and outdoor purposes. Outdoor autonomy is easiest for aerial robots like drones. Cruise missiles, pilotless drones and unmanned aerial vehicles have reached a level of development where they are able to fly their entire missions without any human influence. Autonomy in robots for use on ground is still in early stages of its development. Examples of space unmanned autonomous robots include mars rovers MER-A and MER-B. Growing trend for automation in production and manufacturing processes has sped up the development of autonomous industrial robots. Growing applications and adoption of autonomous warehouse and logistics industry vertical has driven the growth of the autonomous robot market. Increasing need for unmanned vehicles in military and space has positively impacted the market of autonomous robots. Use of autonomous robots for food delivery has been a recent trend in the autonomous robot market. However, factors like government regulations and security concerns related to autonomous robots is currently restraining the growth of the autonomous robot market.
