Today, exactly 20 years ago I presented my thesis at the Loyola Polytechnic. The thesis dealt with the economic impact of industrial robotics. The 120-pages research document was prepared by Francisco Aleman, Esteban Esteves, Victor Feliz, Jordhy Ledesma, Moises Luna and Jose Tamayo.
The analysis considered developmental models from Japan, USA, Germany, Sweden and France and determined their fitness for Latin American industries. Although in Spanish, the document has full OCR capabilities so you may find this piece of research useful if you operate in the areas of electronics, mechatronics, eBusiness or information science.
