When it comes to the “ultimate” robot’s characteristics, it must be:
3. Easy to configure
5. Digitally integrated
Will the winner be a pure-play robotics company (such as Intuitive or Verb Surgical)? A current medtech supplier looking to drive a robotic solution (J&J, Medtronic, Stryker)? Or even a large entrant with deep pockets but no skin in the current game (Apple, Tesla, IBM)?
