About the whitepaper

Whether it be down to technological advances or rising market demand the increase in robotics is happening across numerous industries from healthcare, industrial to retail.

The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of around 10 per cent, reaching almost 70.6 billion U.S. dollars by 2028.

Any robotics manufacturer needs to consider how their operating system (OS) will influence both the speed and efficiency of development and then how that performs in production to provide a stable yet supportable product in the long run. These considerations are even more important in such a fast-moving and competitive market.

The operating system is one of the most critical decisions, contributing to the company’s monetisation route, support offerings, and security strategy.

This whitepaper:

  • Covers several key OS considerations for robotics development and production.
  • Explores how the OS contributes to the security, update infrastructure and maintenance of robotics solutions.
  • Shows why Ubuntu is chosen by so many robotics companies and how they are leveraging its open-source tools for robotics.
