The article presents an interviews with Brian R. Carlisle, the president of the U.S. Robotics Industries Association, regarding the importance of robotics in industrial engineering in the U.S. When asked about the failure of the robotics to revolutionize the manufacturing industry, he cited the intense focus given on product design as the major contributing factor in failure. He believes that faster microprocessors will make sensing much less expensive and will put a whole lot more process knowledge into the robots.
