Trend of robot technology development
core_img_01
According to the 2016 Global AI Robot Sales Survey released by Trendforce, AI-based robots with voice recognition accounted for about 50% of total sales followed by vacuum cleaners with 40%. Below is an analysis of the rapidly growing global and domestic robot market with trends based on voice recognition AI assistants.

1) Humanoid Robot Technology Development Trend

In order to prepare for this, we are focusing on humanoid robot technology development. In addition, humanoid robots can support the elderly and chronically ill patients, and it is expected that demand will increase greatly in the future.


2) Social robot technology development trend and vulnerability

Social Robot, an artificially intelligent robot that has been developed to accurately manipulate human behaviors and share emotional feelings with human beings using Big Data Analysis Technology, is trending.
However, the social robot has the disadvantage of imprecise processing as it relies on a sensing algorithm that processes information and values by mapping various human emotional expression values (initial input values).

3) Analysis of Domestic robot industry trend

① Characteristics of domestic robot industry
Focus on service robot development
- Classified as home, educational robots
- Focus on the public education robot market as a short-term growth field
- World-class ICT infrastructure technology

② Domestic robot industry analysis
- The global market for home and educational robots is expected to grow at a CAGR of 32% from $16.36 billion in 2013, to a massive $47.91 billion market in 2017. The domestic market is expected to grow at an annual average rate of 47% from 2.94 trillion won in 2013 and is expected to form the largest market with 13.746 trillion won in 2017.
The following table shows the results of the 'Situation and Prospects for the Home and Education Robot Market' conducted by the Small and Medium Business Administration in 2013.
2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 CAGR(% 2013~2017)
Global market (million) 16,036 22,800 28,356 38,530 47,971 32
the home market(million) 2,355 3,830 5,214 8,089 11,011 47

As AI robot technology evolves day by day, social robots are developed for life at home while industrial robots are developed mainly for enterprise customers. In addition, intelligent robots are spreading through machine learning and deep learning. The robotic industry is also an industry where barriers to entry are high due to the demand for high-level work in various environments, including ultra-precise control technology and reliability in extreme environments. The percentage of the elderly population in the country is expected to account for 32.3% in 2040 from 24.3% in 2030. Accordingly, the humanoid and other intelligent robot industries are expected to grow steadily.

③ Strategy for domestic robot industry development
- Need to develop artificial intelligent robots that improve both hardware and software technology - Focused on developing original technology by combining software and content technology which is the core of the robot market with information service, video streaming, embedded software, middleware and network, and next generation PC technology
- In Korea, infrastructure and hardware technology related to robot industry has developed to a considerable level but additional technological progress and innovation are required in the robot software content market.

In the future, household robots will be able to automatically identify each family member and receive feedback through natural language-based dialogue, which is expected to be the most important user interface in smart homes. It will also serve as the "command center" of the smart home. In other words, it will be possible to control not only the user's commands but also all electronic devices in the home such as household appliances, electric lamps, air conditioners and security devices by learning the life pattern of the user. It is also expected that robots will be able to manage and play downloaded content such as music, movies, TV programs, and games. Based on TiTAN Play’s content service and TCI's content protection technology, TiTAN Platform is aiming to present a new AI robot model by aggregating all of the information around the user.

TiTAN AI Robot Business Planning

Overview

Currently, the test and trial service environments for 5G mobile communication system is being built with collaboration support using realistic media (UHD broadcasting, 360 image, VR / AR, etc.). By implementing application services and reflecting the service requirements through early establishment of 5G development and service test environments, we aim to secure domestic 5G technology competitiveness.

① Developing technology for 5G real-life media service which is a typical use case of 5G and verifying it through a 5G service test environment. By utilizing high-quality realistic content service, personal broadcasting service and high quality video call service, gain technology leadership

② CContributing to the activation of 5G service through the implementation of a multi-user collaboration environment and TiTAN digital signage service by providing a large capacity of content consumption environment through various devices such as Smart Wall and 3D display

③ Establishing an ecosystem for a 5G mobile communication service by linking with other industries through expanding to various services by linking with IoT and discovering new services

④ Improving UX by developing a prototype of the social robot applying AI technology based on speech recognition and link with various services


2) Desktop AI Social Robot Development

On the device side, voice recognition assistants such as Amazon's Echo, Google's Google Home, Apple's Siri, and Samsung's Bixbee are the main voice recognition-based speakers and smartphones.

In addition, real users use AI secretaries for smartphones 10 times a month and smart speakers 86 times a month, which is much higher than smart speakers.


In the future, various form factor, robot technology, and curated emotion technology are expected to be developed into various types of devices in each field. Now is the time to develop and verify a new service based on the development of a desktop social robot that includes image recognition, display, motion, and emotion engine.
The social robot can provide information and multimedia contents based on the interactive interface and control various IoT devices. In the future, it will be developed as a device that provides convenient UX for users by converging with other industries.
TiTAN Platform utilizes voice and image recognition based social robots as a hub to control home IoT devices, providing differentiated UX and convenience to users, and enhancing the possibility of expanding to other industries through linking with existing service platforms.
