Analysing the pilot projects by geographical regions, Europe has the largest number of activities, followed by North America and Asia. In the global context, we highlight the high number of initiatives in Italy.
It is worth to highlight the variety of robotic applications. First of all, the use of robotic platforms equipped with artificial intelligence for the large-scale diagnosis of COVID-19 symptoms.
Most of the projects collected are developed by companies and start-ups. Each project has been assigned a level of technology readiness, 9 is the highest and identifies the robots currently on the market and directly usable. Level 8 is assigned to those systems that are functionally complete and operational, but are not yet in large-scale production. At the lower levels we find the various stages of prototyping of the projects currently under development.
