Automate 2015 - RoboticsTomorrow.com works with Northwestern University Master of Science in Robotics program to send 3 students to Automate 2015

RoboticsTomorrow has teamed up with Northwestern University Professor Jarvis Schultz to give 3 Master of Science in Robotics program students the opportunity to attend and report on Automate 2015 with full media credentials.

San Diego, California, March 18th, 2015 - RoboticsTomorrow, an online robotics and industrial automation publication with the help of Jarvis Schultz, Assistant Director of the MSR program at Northwestern University will be sending 3 students from the MSR program to Automate 2015 as media members on behalf of RoboticsTomorrow.com.


The 3 students selected, Austin Lawrence, Mahdieh Nejati Javaremi & Sabeen Admani were amongst several students who submitted an essay on why they would want to attend Automate 2015 and what they would cover while at the show. These 3 winners will be given a full access Media Pass for Automate 2015 which gives them access to the exhibit floor, press conferences, keynote address and all the conference sessions during the show.

Jarvis Schultz who helped coordinate this said "I\'m really excited that these MSR students get the chance to participate in this venture. The Automate show represents a wonderful opportunity for them to experience the latest in automation technologies, and it provides a chance to see some real-world applications of their coursework. Many thanks to RoboticsTomorrow for facilitating this opportunity."

While at Automate 2015 the students will be asked to write articles and give perspectives on their experience. Bob Hetherington, editor for RoboticsTomorrow said this about the student reporters; "We're hoping that this opportunity will provide these students with a real world perspective on their chosen field and in turn, via their reports, give our readers a fresh perspective on what this tradeshow and the companies participating in it represents to those who are entering the industry".

Stay tuned for all the articles and perspectives going live shortly after the event on RoboticsTomorrow.com.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
