From humanoid entertainment devices to robotic cleaning machines, robots promise to revolutionise the way consumers interact with the world and monitor their health and environment. The Consumer Electronics Association announced that robotics exhibits at the 2015 International CES, 6th to 9th January, 2015, in Las Vegas, have grown 25% from the previous year.
The Robotics Marketplace, presented by Robotics Trends, will feature more than 18 innovative companies showcasing the full range of intelligent, autonomous machines that are connected to the cloud, controllable by mobile device and capable of seeing, hearing, feeling and reacting to the environment in ways once thought impossible. Robotics exhibits at the 2015 CES are expected to cover 8,250 net square feet of exhibit space, an increase of more than 25% over robotics exhibit space at the 2014 CES.
The Robotics Marketplace will be located at CES Tech West within the Sands Expo (Sands). Tech West includes the Sands, The Venetian, The Palazzo and Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn (Wynn/Encore) exhibits. Major exhibitors currently located within the Robotics Marketplace include: ABB, Double Robotics, Evollve d/b/a Ozobot, Lowe’s Innovation Labs and Future Robot. CES Tech West will also feature leading companies and the newest innovations in lifestyle technologies, including sports, fitness and health tech, 3D printing, smart home, sensors, startups and other high-growth technologies.
Karen Chupka, Senior Vice President, International CES and corporate business strategy, CEA, commented: “Robots are changing the way consumers learn, do business, monitor their health, and maintain their households as they are capable of doing things that humans can’t, or simply don’t want to do. We’re thrilled to see that the robotics footprint will expand at the 2015 CES, as it speaks to the category’s growth and ability to disrupt and transform the consumer technology industry.”
