FREMONT, CA: Robots have already occupied various tasks in industries like manufacturing, with machines working continuously and giving humans the time to work on intelligent tasks. There are some unconventional ways industries that the robots are being put to use in. They are:
Restaurants: Robots have established the fact that it can run the restaurant with IoT and AI, working in several posts like receptionists, waiters, and cleaners. A key advantage of hiring robots is that they save 20 percent on the cost of spilled drinks.

Agriculture industry might hire the most robots since it won’t take breaks and provides more efficiency. The robots will fill up the gap between demand and produce by dealing with the labor shortage issues. Technologies like image recognition, real-time scanning with AI and additional limbs with pressure sensors are also used in automatic harvesting robot.
Crime Investigation: The police forces use robots to scan and check the scene of the crime in a detailed manner and pinpoint the probable location of the criminal in the situation of alert. In cases where it is too dangerous for the police to go after the criminal, robots programmed to carry out the same tasks are used.
