During 2018 poll, about 20% of supply chain executives reported that their biggest challenge was the fluctuating consumer demand. In addition, they are strongly concerned about improving production and procurement to reduce total landed costs, optimizing inventory levels and measuring transportation and distribution performance, according to The Hackett Group. study of trends. The flexible response to these fluctuations and necessities requires the inclusion of artificial intelligence in warehouses and logistics management, as well as guaranteeing some powers to the robots.
With the increasing complexity of supply chains of goods and services and rapidly evolving trends, we humans not only need constant automation but also an upgrade of the machines that help us. The ability of machines to make economic decisions and interact with each other is at the heart of the so-called reactive robot economy concept.
According to Robinson networkThe working group that develops a platform to integrate cyber-physical systems in the human economy, the beginning of Industry 4.0 including the intervention of autonomous machines in mass production and in everyday life, is inevitable. .
We can not avoid automation. But…
Even as we speak, developers do their best to transfer routine tasks from people to machines, including fully automated factories that do not require human presence on site.
But first: a factory of lights turned off can strike against the changing needs that come to a sticky end with the goods mounted. Second: the current model of integration of robots in the economy through some centralized parts mainly serves the interests of those parties that present a series of threats such as interference and data breaches. This is where the economy of blockchain and reactive robots comes into play.
First of all, what is the reactive robot economy?
It is a free market of the responsibilities of robots in which machines are self-coordinated, stimulated and regulated, implemented in human society at the same time.
It is an opportunity to easily change working methods in more profitable markets with minimal loss. Because of a reactive economy of the robot, the factory learns what people need at the moment and adjusts itself according to new needs and needs.
So, what's the point of giving up making decisions on the machines?
The answer is: the greater the self-sufficiency of the robot, the lower the costs for its maintenance. Therefore, the 4.0 industry and smart cities in which the robot factories are implemented in all their splendor, require direct autonomous robotic communication with some sums of money that are credited to spend.
Take for example self-driving cars and drones. As they fly to the stores for goods, they run out of charge and require immediate repair. Instead of checking each autopilot, it's best to give some money to a robot and let it decide on its own when and where you should buy the battery or visit a workshop.
The existing Ethereum infrastructure allows the creation of such an environment that combines the cyber-physical systems or the reactive robot economy. The current stage of robotics development allows CPS to communicate and exchange services between themselves and with humans directly.
Ultimately it allows to improve the use of robots and stimulates multiple technological, legal, social and cultural innovations.
The project was created by Russian engineers and scientists who have developed Blockchain solutions since 2011. For now, Robonomics has received an investment of over $ 1 million and is preparing a bounty program for miners for the purpose of token distribution and full distribution. dell & # 39; ecosystem. In 2017, with the participation of Microsoft, the first international transfer of carbon units in the world through the Blockchain took place on the Robonomics platform.
