  • Adoption of Robots for Disasters: Lessons from the Response to COVID-19

    • Abstract: AbstractThis article describes how robot innovations are adopted during a disaster using the COVID-19 response both as a natural experiment and a case study. The article is based on an analysis of the R4ID dataset of 203 instances of ground and aerial robots in 34 countries explicitly reported in the press, social media, and scientific literature from January 24, 2020, to July 4, 2020, as being used due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the reports do not provide sufficient detail to ascertain gaps in specific algorithms or specific subsystems, such as perception, manipulation, or autonomy, the size and the pervasiveness of the data permits examination of three questions: 1) how the need for a robot arises during a disaster, 2) whether those needs are met with existing technically mature robots, adapting existing robots, or innovating new robots, and 3) what are the major barriers to inserting robots into use during a disaster. The analysis utilizes a novel formal framework consisting of a sociotechnical work domain analysis, an extended demand analysis, and a rating of the technical maturity of each instance using the NASA Technical Readiness Assessment (TRA) ranking. The relative TRA of robots is compared by work domain and modality, followed by an in-depth examination of technically mature Heritage systems, which accounted for 74% of the 203 instances, modified Engineering Systems (13%), and New Systems accounting (13%). The data is also discussed in terms of a) demand pull versus innovation push, b) availability, c) suitability, and 4) risk, leading to a formal model of organization adoption of robotics during a disaster. The analysis shows that organizational adoption of robotics during a disaster embodies two of the four components of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology Model (UTAUT) (Venkatesh et al., 2003), specifically that adoption is primarily influenced by end-users’ expectations of performance and how much effort they need to expend to integrate into work processes, also known as suitability and risk. The data also suggests that a third component of UTAUT, facilitating conditions for adoption, occurs during disasters because regulations and acquisition policies may be waived. In addition, the data shows that the lack of availability of some models of existing robots due to low inventory, delays in delivery, or high purchase price facilitated conditions for the development and adoption of new, possibly less reliable, alternative robots. The analysis also shows that the the adoption of robots for a disaster, regardless of work domain, is the result of demand pull by the primary stakeholders, not an innovation push by roboticists, as the majority of missions were established prior to the disaster. The article concludes with four recommendations for roboticists pursuing disaster robotics: 1) work with stakeholders before a disaster to design robots to meet pre-existing established demands, 2) design robots or software that support multiple uses so that robots can be quickly and safely adapted, 3) engage in technology transfer to integrate robots into operational use prior to the disaster, conduct fundamental research into formal methods for projecting the risk of using the robot in terms of direct and indirect performance and consequences, and 4) conduct fundamental research in design and on demand manufacturing so as to increase the availability and functionality of low cost Heritage robots.Suggested CitationRobin R.

  • Cybersecurity in Robotics: Challenges, Quantitative Modeling, and Practice

    • Abstract: AbstractRobotics is becoming more and more ubiquitous, but the pressure to bring systems to market occasionally goes at the cost of neglecting security mechanisms during the development, deployment or while in production. As a result, contemporary robotic systems are vulnerable to diverse attack patterns, and an a posteriori hardening is at least challenging, if not impossible at all. This book aims to stipulate the inclusion of security in robotics from the earliest design phases onward and with a special focus on the costbenefit tradeoff that can otherwise be an inhibitor for the fast development of affordable systems. We advocate quantitative methods of security management and design, covering vulnerability scoring systems tailored to robotic systems, and accounting for the highly distributed nature of robots as an interplay of potentially very many components. A powerful quantitative approach to model-based security is offered by game theory, providing a rich spectrum of techniques to optimize security against various kinds of attacks. Such a multi-perspective view on security is necessary to address the heterogeneity and complexity of robotic systems. This book is intended as an accessible starter for the theoretician and practitioner working in the field.Suggested CitationQuanyan Zhu, Stefan Rass, Bernhard Dieber and Víctor Mayoral Vilches (2021), "Cybersecurity in Robotics: Challenges, Quantitative Modeling, and Practice", Foundations and Trends® in Robotics: Vol. 9: No. 1, pp 1-129.

  • A Roadmap for US Robotics – From Internet to Robotics 2020 Edition

    • Abstract: AbstractRecently, the robotics industry celebrated its 60-year anniversary. We have used robots for more than six decades to empower people to do things that are typically dirty, dull and/or dangerous. The industry has progressed significantly over the period from basic mechanical assist systems to fully autonomous cars, environmental monitoring and exploration of outer space. We have seen tremendous adoption of IT technology in our daily lives for a diverse set of support tasks. Through use of robots we are starting to see a new revolution, as we not only will have IT support from tablets, phones, computers but also systems that can physically interact with the world and assist with daily tasks, work, and leisure activities. The present document is a summary of the main societal opportunities identified, the associated challenges to deliver desired solutions and a presentation of efforts to be undertaken to ensure that US will continue to be a leader in robotics both in terms of research innovation, adoption of the latest technology, and adoption of appropriate policy frameworks that ensure that the technology is utilized in a responsible fashion.Suggested CitationHenrik Christensen, Nancy Amato, Holly Yanco, Maja Mataric, Howie Choset, Ann Drobnis, Ken Goldberg, Jessy Grizzle, Gregory Hager, John Hollerbach, Seth Hutchinson, Venkat Krovi, Daniel Lee, William D.

  • The State of Industrial Robotics: Emerging Technologies, Challenges, and
           Key Research Directions

    • Abstract: AbstractRobotics and related technologies are central to the ongoing digitization and advancement of manufacturing. In recent years, a variety of strategic initiatives around the world including “Industry 4.0”, introduced in Germany in 2011 have aimed to improve and connect manufacturing technologies in order to optimize production processes. In this work, we study the changing technological landscape of robotics and “Internet-of-Things” (IoT)-based connective technologies over the last 7–10 years in the wake of Industry 4.0. We interviewed key players within the European robotics ecosystem, including robotics manufacturers and integrators, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and applied industrial research institutions and synthesize our findings in this monograph. We first detail the state-of-the-art robotics and IoT technologies we observed and that the companies discussed during our interviews. We then describe the processes the companies follow when deciding whether and how to integrate new technologies, the challenges they face when integrating these technologies, and some immediate future technological avenues they are exploring in robotics and IoT. Finally, based on our findings, we highlight key research directions for the robotics community that can enable improved capabilities in the context of manufacturing.Suggested CitationLindsay Sanneman, Christopher Fourie and Julie A.
