LONDON, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Adoption of Drones and Autonomous robots are steadily increasing in various industries, foremost being healthcare, defense and industrial. Therefore, it's very important that the power sources used in these bots and drones support them to sustain in tough conditions and extreme environment. This research study focuses on identifying the various power sources that can be used for drones and bots across various industries along with the key expectations that these power sources should satisfy. The study also assess the current and emerging power technologies and utilizes a scenario modeling approach to forecast the future adoption potential of various power sources.
End-user needs' of autonomous robots converge into a single theme, which is to have a higher performance power source in terms of energy and power density than existing ones, thus allowing it to operate longer and perform multiple tasks.
Lithium-ion battery is the most used battery nowadays because it offers high performance with a small footprint. Low cost is the main factor that influences current robot developers choice of the incumbent power sources, which are lithium-ion battery, lead acid battery, compressed gas, and combustion engine.
Advancement of nanomaterials is the major driver of emerging power sources because it allows development of stable and higher power density power sources. However, the system still exhibits technological instability especially in power output. Another factor that drives emerging power sources is innovative start-ups especially in North America and Europe.
Even though flow of knowledge between stakeholders has been identified as the major element that can push innovation in power sources in autonomous robot; however, knowledge flow between the stakeholders are less dynamic because of low collective national interest, except for the military, in pushing the technology further.
The future scenario of power sources for autonomous robots in the next years is expected to remain the same, wherein R&D will remain in need of applied research and the start-ups ecosystem will see a few die while the rest survive.
