Robots are going to become a common scene soon. There are many unsafe conditions where humans cannot go, robots can be of help. Also humans gets bored of doing same thing again and again in the same manner but robots can do. EU being at par in technology as US or other western countries, it would be expected to see some advanced reserach in action from them.

Sp, you are right about making use of robotics in day to day activity; where humans are failed or cannot executed.  We had seen the role of robotic Tokyo (Japan) atomic research center during the tsunami disaster. In such areas we can use robotics and human causalities can be reduced.

This is definitely good news for human beings. We would see more drones doing delivery and autonomous police car on the street to keep traffic in check.

"One of the main challenges is to change public perception about robots. Today 70% of EU citizens believe that robots steal people's jobs. While the reality is that the industry currently supports 3.6 jobs for every industrial robot in use, the Commission expects the robotics market to help create 2 million jobs over the next eight years."

Pablo, such concerns are very common, especially when a new technology is getting productized and popularizing. The same thing happens when companies start using computers. Only time can prove or address such concerns.

This is a very encouraging news for people at large. More research, novel technology more products and more jobs. I like this.

I wonder if this SPARC initiaitive will eventually go global so we can benefit from R&D carried out all over the world.  Robotics are a key part of our manufacturing today and needs to continually be developed.
