As a rule, technology is often developed in response to the needs of its users. This is certainly the case with regards to robot cameras, which have been designed to perform functions that more traditional alternatives are simply unable to.
Foremost amongst these is the ability to send robot cameras into situations that might otherwise be dangerous, and we can see this in evidence many times in more recent nature documentaries, for example, where robot cameras have allowed the audience to get close to dozens of predatory animals and/or foray into hazardous habitats without endangering the cameraman.
However, it’s not only in the wilderness that robot cameras can come in handy. Also increasingly used in film and TV studios, robot cameras are able to function in even the most cramped conditions.
As expert Assaff Rawner explains, this is useful because “the demand on space, whether seats in stadiums or modular studios, is increasing pressure to reduce the operational footprint of cameras while accommodating for the demand of increasing camera angles.”
