“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 Robot 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 Devices, Intel®, Microchip Technology 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.
