Self-Reconfiguring Modular Robot Market, By Offering (Hardware, Software, and Services), By Product Type (Lattice architectures, Chain/tree architectures, Deterministic reconfiguration, Mobile architectures, and Stochastic reconfiguration), By Application (Space, and Search and rescue), By End-user Industry (Automotive, Electrical and Electronics, Metals and Machinery, Plastics, Rubber and Chemicals, Food and Beverages, Precision Engineering and Optics, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics, and Others), and By Region - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2025

Modular self-reconfigurable robotic systems are responsible for designing, controlling, fabricating, and motion planning of kinematic machines by using variable morphology. These robots use lattice architectures, which is 3D patterns for assembly and connection of each component by transmitting electrical and mechanical power. These provide high robustness and high versatility, which is further aids in robotic automation. In addition to this, they are aid in decision making and can automatically adjust and change their own shape or structure, depending on the task. They can make a comprehensive range of morphologies that can be composed by using the same component and for this, they may use wheels, grippers, and camera among other accessories. Moreover, these are highly versatility, and can rearrange their morphology and they consists of similar components. Owing to that, if somehow any module is damaged during operation, they can automatically discard the damaged module with an identical module and rearrange their own structure. These factors are favorable to propel growth of the global self-reconfiguring modular robot market over the forecast period.

Sambot is a self-reconfiguring, self-assembly robot. It consists embedded mechatronics integrated technology, which includes actuators, microprocessors, sensors, power, and communication units integrated in the module. Hence, this Sambot robot can move autonomously, can change their morphology and rearrange it. Moreover, it can connect with other modules and it has the capacity to lift two other modules, and to move a complete system. It is smaller in size and has operational running time at least 15 minutes. Therefore, it can be utilized in search and rescue program.

However, high initial installation cost for low-volume production applications is one of the major factors that is expected to restraint growth of the global self-reconfiguring modular robot market.
