About The Robot Report
From the days when the industrial robot arm was the high-tech solution to industrial automation, to today, when surgical robots and a medical robot are in the advanced robotics news almost every day, robotics technology is booming. Robotics artificial intelligence (AI), and robotic toys are just two of many areas propelling that boom.
The Robot Report gathers and reports industry news, tracks the business of robotics, and has developed proprietary (ROBO-STOX™) methods to compare robot industry stock performance to the NASDAQ Index. Whether reporting about a robotic arm, a new robotic hand or the stock results of the robotics industry, The Robot Report strives to keep you informed. The Robot Report also has a comprehensive worldwide database of public and private companies that are participants in the robotics industry.
The Robot Report features general robotics, industrial robots, robot events, FIRST, RoboCup, VEX, artificial intelligence for robots, robot software, robot hacks, robot reviews, LEGO Mindstorms NXT, and mobile robots of all types: underwater ROVs, autonomous land sea and air vehicles, aerial UAVs and remote-controlled. The Robot Report also reports on space, military, industrial, commercial and medical robot news. The robot centric website focuses on robot products and projects, including robot and robotics technology news from Japan, Korea, Europe, Israel, the US and around the world. Entertainment robots, domestic help robots, health care and senior care robots, exoskeletons and bionic prosthetics, and other robot applications in assisting humans are covered regularly. The Robot Report has been reporting on robot news, competitions and events since 2008.
About The Author: Frank Tobe is the owner and publisher of The Robot Report. After selling his business and retiring from 25+ years as consultant to the Democratic National Committee and major presidential, senatorial, congressional, mayoral campaigns and initiatives all across the U.S., Canada and internationally, he has energetically pursued a new career in researching and investing in robotics.
“Early in 2008, in a personal effort to learn about the robotics industry and the future of robotics, with an eye toward selectively investing in publicly-traded and privately owned robotics businesses, I began an intensive research project that took me to Japan, Korea, China, Switzerland, Germany and all over the Internet. My eyesight has suffered but not my mind. I love what I’m doing and finding out and, in an effort to share my research, I set up this website, The Robot Report, to track the business of robotics. Early in 2009 I set up the Everything-Robotic blog to supplement The Robot Report with periodic in-depth personal insights.” Frank is also a panel member for Robohub’s Robotics by Invitation series. Robohub is a Swiss-based online platform that brings together leading communicators in robotics research, start-ups, business, and education from around the world.
