Unlike industrial robots that mainly perform simple repetitive tasks, an intelligent robot is a Fusion System that integrates IT technologies such as artificial intelligence, human interface, and ubiquitous network. Various policies have been established for industrial development.
The size of the global home robot market is expected to grow from $2 billion in 2017 (about KRW 2.38 trillion) to $9.7 billion (about KRW 11.56 trillion) this year.
