The tan boxes are the foundational technologies used in each field.

The limiting factors currently are:
A good summary of the state of the art in mobile robotics was the August 2015 Fab11 conference panel on Making Robots, including speakers from Boston Dynamics, DARPA, Kiva, MIT, and Harvard.  It's an hour long video, but it's worth watching!
