Consumer robots have been a mainstay of popular culture for more than 50 years, fueling the notion that, eventually, robots would be an important part of our daily lives. While the vision of robotic companions and servants has remained largely unfulfilled, the industry is now in a period of renewed interest in consumer robotics, as the market evolves beyond the traditional realm of household cleaning robots and into an era that will be filled with increasingly capable toy and educational robots, robotic personal assistants, and family companions.

Consumer robotic companies are charting a new course using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to make their robots smarter, with the possibility of extending their capabilities and integrating with other smart home devices in the future. Meanwhile, machine vision, voice recognition, tactile sensors, and gesture recognition are all being incorporated into consumer robots, as well, as the consumer market benefits from technology innovations originally created for enterprise and industrial markets. Silicon Valley is becoming a hotbed for consumer robotic startups, and the emergence of hardware incubators is simplifying the challenges of supply chain management and manufacturing for innovative companies worldwide. At the same time, the developed world is aging rapidly, and consumer robots are emerging as a key solution to the increasing challenges of eldercare. The next phase of the consumer robotics revolution is well and truly underway, and the next 5 years will set the stage for how these robots could fundamentally transform our homes and daily lives.
