ASTM F48 Meetings | April 1-2:
The ASTM Committee F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits will lead two days of meetings and breakout sessions on the development of consensus standards. Topics will address use of active and passive systems in settings involving industry, emergency response, health care, military, and consumer use. F48 subcommittees will target topics such as safety, quality, performance, ergonomics, security and informational technologies, and terminology for systems and components during the full life cycle of the product - from before usage, to maintenance, to disposal.

ASU Southwest Robotics Symposium | April 2-3:
The ASU Southwest Robotics Symposium will focus on three themes this year: Manufacturing and Robotics, Agriculture and Robotics, and Mobility and Robotics. The main goal of the symposium is to build a community by fostering collaboration and promoting close interaction between leading researchers, engineers, and technology adopters while learning about state-of-the-art applications of robotics and autonomous systems. The event includes a Drone Delivery Challenge Competition (D2C2) on April 2nd and a special keynote by Dr. Vijay Kumar on April 3rd. Click here for more information.
