Robotics may be one of the greatest technological innovations of all time, and their rise is just beginning. Specialty, lightweight, precision connectivity products are key to their agility and utility.

As companies look for ways to reduce their labor costs and increase their ability to perform tasks in a human-touch-free manner, the job functions robots perform are increasing. There are fetch robots, picking robots, and autonomous robots. Robots pick fruit, pack boxes, and retrieve things off shelves. Robots help manufacture and assemble things. Robots are on the verge of doing nearly everything that humans can do and they can do many things we cannot, particularly in harsh environments. The rise of highly flexible electronic systems that depend on sensors, connectors, and cables enable these complex systems to perform with accuracy and reliability.
