In 2001, Industrial Research began re-looking at semiconductors and electronics. Since then it has been a non-stop barrage of new products. In 2005, IR decided that there was enough info on semiconductors and electronics that it could be sent out in newsletters every 3 months instead of once a year. In 2011, Industrial Research officially began re-viewing industrial robots which were last researched in 1993. The research on industrial robots is about two years behind where Semiconductor & Electronics research is currently (which is about a 6-year delay). This means IR will begin providing information on new industrial robots sometime during mid-2015. By 2017, Industrial Research should be publishing information on certain aspects of self-driving cars.
