"In this new e-book, Mouser's engineering experts give readers a sense
of what to expect from service robots, with articles that appeal to
engineers and non-engineers alike," said Kevin Hess, Senior Vice
President, Marketing at Mouser Electronics. "Previously in the
Generation Robot series, Mouser and Grant investigated the rise of
collaborative robots: robots that work side by side with humans. In this
e-book, we see what happens when those robots are more autonomous."

The Generation
series, hosted by Imahara, features five videos filmed in
locations around the world, highlighting the people, companies and
machines that are changing how we view and interact with robots. The
series showcases everything from robotic theory to real-world robotic
use cases that seem like science fiction but are, in reality, a glimpse
at how we will navigate in an equally human and robot world. The
Generation Robot series is supported by Mouser's valued suppliers Analog
, Intel®,
and Molex.

Since 2015, Mouser's Empowering Innovation Together program has been one
of the most visible and recognized programs in the electronic component
industry, featuring projects ranging from 3D printing objects in space
to the amazing benefits of technologies that are Shaping Smarter Cities.
For 2018, Mouser's goal is to reach even more innovators around the
globe with the Empowering Innovation Together program through the focus
of how robots impact humanity.
