From February 29 to March 1, 2012 experts from all over the world came together for the 5th Expert Days on Service Robotics at SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems. This event is the world's leading communication platform for applied service robotics. Under the slogan "Service Robotics - Quo vadis?" 18 speakers from ten countries presented in practice-orientated lectures a comprehensive picture of the human-robot interaction. Focus of the interdisciplinary cooperation were issues such as "Perception and Learning", "Market Development", "Robot and Component Design" as well as "Robot and Humans".

The event was fully booked with more than 120 participants. A gala program in the evening was held to celebrate the 5th anniversary.

The significance of the symposium of the committed family-owned company was proven by the speakers list: It ranged from Steve Cousins, president and CEO of the US-American robotics forge Willow Garage, to Prof. Dr. Roland Siegwart of the ETH in Zurich. Lectures from Bosch, Siemens, Philips, and the European Commission made it clear that service robotics used in the industrial and domestic sector has become a major economic factor, which is commercially used by an increasing number of companies. Several projects were also presented in an accompanying exhibition. Visit our website for detailed information on this event at www.expertdays.schunk.com.

The date for the 6th annual SCHUNK Expert Days on Service Robotics will take place on February 27 to February 28, 2013.
