Hi Madison, I am giving a webinar next Thursday on Robotics 101 with RIA and it will cover this question, but right now, automotive is the big driver for industrial automation. Specifically welding, painting, and assembly. Robots are in almost every sector of the economy, and in every process for manufacturing, material handling to inspection, pick and place to storage/retrieval and packaging / food automation. Hope this helps. Regards, Jim
Hi Madison, I am a consultant at Exponent, an international engineering and science consulting firm headquartered in Menlo Park just off 101. My particular expertise is on robotics and mechanical engineering. I would be happy to discuss the robotics industry with you in more detail, if you like. Thanks, Tom Thomas Wedlick, Ph.D., P.E.

Good afternoon Madison. The Industrial Robotics Industry covers robots that are mainly used in the manufacturing sectors (automotive, electronics, food & beverage, etc.). Have a look at the International Federation of Robotics web site: http://www.ifr.org/industrial-robots/, it should help you out.
