TAIPEI -- Taiwanese tech manufacturer Foxconn Technology Group earned its fame as the company that assembles Apple iPhones. What is less known is that it is also considered the best robotics company in Taiwan, with ambitions to take on global leaders such as Kuka and ABB.

     Foxconn's robotics efforts began turning heads when its Japanese partner SoftBank unveiled Pepper, a humanoid service robot manufactured by the Taiwanese company, in 2014.
