You are French, country of Aldebaran.
Yes, France, had a great advance for those kind of Robots.
The non industrial one.
I am not a specialist, but because of my event activity, I go around lot’s of robotics related gatherings.
Here in Japan, it’s moving fast and Hard.
They do what they do the best.
I was at a contest, individuals and companies where competing to create services for clients of one of the biggest bank of Japan.
Services for Pepper,
Technicians of different OS were on stand by in the same room.
What really differ here is the way people are educated.
(The roots of this education system being strongly influenced by French Military education during Meiji Restoration)
And this unique educative system create people that organize well.
And that’s what they are doing, they have the tools, they have the ability,…
If you have a little startup, you have a solid group of clients in France.
You are thinking to hire someone for the Japanese Market.
Don’t Hesitate, do it!
In 5 years, you might be working for Rakuten Robotics, or DMM Robots.
It’s time to enter the Japanese Market!
God, please make me be a foolish (king of use to that), I want to be wrong.
As a conclusion,
It’s now or never to enter the Japanese market. But do it fast.
