What is the current state of Robotics ? There is no way to know.
Robotics is not something that is limited to a few companies or universities. Worldwide there is development by hundreds of companies, universities, and user groups, often sharing, but often hiding their results.
The area is so competitive, and there are so many players, that it is impossible to know what the true state of Robotics is.
Government money from DARPA and other agencies are funding research that we know is secret. And who knows what Google is up to with the 8 or more robotics companies that they have purchased in recent years ?
Journalists and regulators are limited to the bits of info that are published from public sources, and leaked Youtube videos. It seems clear that the leading edge of current Robotics is beyond anything presented on these pages.
Which brings up a point.
