INTELLIGENT VISION AND SENSING FOR ROBOT NAVIGATION, OBJECT RECOGNITION AND CONTROL

Commercial robotic systems typically make use of multiple types of vision systems and sensors to capture information about the physical world, which following fusion and further processing allows them to orient themselves, avoid obstacles, navigate, and provide additional information. Common sensor types include 2D / 3D imaging sensors (cameras), 1D and 2D laser rangefinders, 2D and 3D sonar sensors, 3D High Definition LiDAR, accelerometers, GPS and more. Thankfully, solution providers continue to release increasingly powerful, yet cost effective, ‘intelligent’ vision and sensing solutions. In this RoboBusiness Direct session, attendees will learn of the latest advances in intelligent vision and sensing products and technologies, and their new capabilities. Use cases highlighting important trends, and examples of the latest sensing trends and techniques, will also be included.

5TH UNMANNED AND AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS FOR UTILITIES, POWER & ENERGY

The 5th Unmanned and Autonomous Systems for Utilities, Power & Energy event will harness the priorities of utility organizations to develop, advance and refine internal UAV/Drone Programs. The event will highlight inspection best practices, regulatory updates to Part 107 and BVLOS waivers, data management and security advancements and more!

AUTONOMOUS MOBILE ROBOTS: SCALING FROM PILOTS TO FLEETS

At this time, there exists a rapidly growing number of companies who have adopted autonomous mobile robots in their warehouses and distribution centers, where they have delivered real business value as an efficient, robust and flexible solution for many applications. Many of these firms deployed AMRs on a trial or project basis, and are now considering more strategic, scaled rollouts. For non-adopters, too, the issue of scaling AMRs from pilot projects to autonomous fleets is a key concern. In this RoboBusiness Direct roundtable discussion, attendees with learn from solutions providers and industry experts about critical AMR scaling challenges and solutions.

AUTOMATE FORWARD 2021

Automate Forward, the premier virtual conference and trade show for the robotics and automation industry, which will be held March 22-26, 2021. The conference will feature more than 80 speakers on robotics, machine vision, motion control, artificial intelligence, and smart automation technologies. Automate Forward will include a virtual exhibit hall and networking center where attendees can connect directly with companies and experts to solve their automation solutions. Registration for Automate Forward is open now. Exhibiting and sponsorship opportunities are available.

ADVANCES IN ROBOTIC PICKING, GRASPING AND MANIPULATION

Grasping and manipulation, the ability to directly and physically interact with and modify objects in the environment, is perhaps the greatest differentiator between robotic systems and all other classes of automated systems. Many types of robots require the ability to coordinate tactile, vision, and proprioceptive sensing to pick-up and operate on all manner of objects, with goals ranging from providing human-like dexterity and autonomous manipulation, to high precision repeatability, and on to super human strength and endurance. During this panel session, attendees will learn of the latest technologies and techniques commercially available to support robotics picking, grasping and manipulation, as well as solutions emerging from the lab that will allow for whole new classes of robotics applications.

SERVICES SOLUTIONS FOR ROBOTICS COMPANIES: DESIGN, ENGINEERING AND MANUFACTURING

Design, engineering and manufacturing services providers play a critical role in the production of robotics technologies and products. The services they provide range from the short term and tactical, to longer client engagements requiring deep domain expertise and end-to-end solutions involving co-innovation and shared financial risk. In this RoboBusiness Direct session, attendees will learn about the wide variety of services offerings that are available for creating and manufacturing robotics technologies and products, as well as provider selection criteria, business models and service agreement options. Case studies will be used to highlight critical points.

INDUSTRIAL EXOSKELETONS: STATE-OF-THE-ART AND EMERGING OPPORTUNITIES

In this RoboBusiness Direct session, attendees will learn of the business, technology, and social issues driving the industrial exoskeleton market, and the many ways exoskeleton technologies – powered and unpowered - are being used in warehouses and manufacturing sites today. The session will also include a discussion of the industrial exoskeleton technical and operational issues, and how exo technologies could be utilized in other sectors – both of which are opportunity indicators for robotics solution providers and enabling technology suppliers.

5G & ROBOTICS: POWERING NEW SOLUTIONS, CREATING NEW OPPORTUNITIES

Compared with earlier generations of mobile network technology, 5G provides for greater levels of raw speed and security, as well as lower latency, higher capacity and other benefits. 5G is a capabilities multiplier for a wide range of products and technologies, including robotics systems. As such, fifth generation (5G) networking/communications technologies provide opportunities to developers of robotics solutions, as well as companies exploring novel uses for robotics systems that were impossible prior to the advent of 5G. In this RoboBusiness Direct session, attendees will be provided with a 5G capabilities review for robotics system developers, a snapshot of the existing state of 5G implementation, and current and potential uses of technologies.

MOBILE ROBOTS IN THE WAREHOUSE: RECENT CASE STUDIES FROM DISTRIBUTORS, MANUFACTURERS, AND FULFILLMENT CENTERS

For many companies considering AMRs, questions remain… are they productive as advertised, are they cost effective, can they be integrated with other automation technology, can they be scaled? In this RoboBusiness Direct roundtable session, a series of case studies of AMR installations in warehouse environments will provide answers to these questions (and more).

EDGE, FOG AND CLOUD ROBOTICS: COMPUTATION, STORAGE AND AI SOLUTIONS FOR ROBOTICS DEVELOPERS

It is often useful to think of robotic systems as a class of edge device, albeit ones that are highly sensored and actively move in the physical world, with some supporting point-to-point mobility or advanced manipulation (or both). Many also support various levels of autonomy, as well as exhibit high levels of intelligence. As such, robotics designers and engineers can take advantage of different types of distributed execution architectures – edge, fog and cloud – to optimize their systems and their intended applications.

ROBOTICS-ASSISTED SURGERY: CRITICAL CHALLENGES AND ROBOTICS OPPORTUNITIES

For all of their successes, the practice of robotics-assisted surgery faces a number of challenges that must be addressed for the practice to become more widespread. In this RoboBusiness Direct session, the current state of robotics-assisted surgery, along with a forecast of future advances, will be described. Special emphasis will be placed on the key limitations of existing systems, and essential requirements (opportunities) going forward.

AUTOMATICA

Challenges, opportunities, risks: In times of great upheaval, automatica 2020 provides valuable impetus for the future of automated production. The world’s leading trade fair for smart automation and robotics is the only event worldwide that brings all visionary key technologies together in one place. Another inspiring part of automatica is the supporting program with its focus on relevant topics and top-level speakers: Learn how to utilize the latest developments to your advantage from industrial, scientific and political leaders. The vision of autonomous production begins here in Munich.

MILITARY ROBOTICS AND AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS USA

The newest and most exciting event in SMi’s unmanned portfolio, MRAS USA is the only US-based event specifically dedicated to military robotics in the land environment. It will bring together the leading US and international program managers, robotics experts and industry to discuss the rapidly expanding role of military robots within the modern battlespace. As new opportunities and challenges emerge in this rapidly changing area, the conference enables the military robotics community to work collaboratively to forge ahead and deliver the very best unmanned capabilities to soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.
