As field is very narrow at the moment because of the cost of getting a safe technical solutions, but there are a number of developing commercial autonomous robots in the fields of: 1. Children's Toys - Build you own robots kits; 2. House Cleaning Robots; 3. Automotive Safety Features - car following and collision avoidance; 4. Numerous military applications - mine detection/disposal and surveillance; There is still some way to go before you see a…
