RoboBusiness Takes Boston By Storm

1,000 Professionals Join Together to Invest, Innovate & Implement

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Oct. 30, 2014 -- Held in Boston, MA, RoboBusiness 2014 experienced record-breaking attendance and press coverage and had more robots on the showcase floor than ever before! Hosting attendees from over 20 countries, this was not only the largest, but most internationally diverse event yet.


On October 15, nLink beat 14 competing startups, winning the Pitchfire event. Their Mobile Drilling Robot is a technology that will relieve construction workers from overhead work involved with measuring and drilling in concrete ceilings.

Additionally that evening, 7 other companies emerged victorious during the Robotics Business Review Game Changer Awards. Winners included Andrew Alliance, Clearpath Robotics, Grabit, Harvard University, iRobot, Kairos Autonomi and Rethink Robotics.

And for the first time, a Showcase Theater provided live demonstrations and product unveilings throughout the afternoon of October 16. The theater area was standing-room-only as Aethon, Black Dog Robotics, CSIRO, Energid, Harvest Automation, Rethink Robotics, Universal Robots and VECNA Technologies took the stage.

These spotlight events were in addition to standout keynote presentations that touched on everything from company development and growth to social robotics, mobility and much more. "Robots will do the dangerous and dirty work for humans," said keynote Robert Ambrose of NASA-JSC.

The event also housed two workshops and a host of informative conference sessions focused on the following tracks: Business Development, Commercial Design Trends, Disruptive Applications and Enabling Technologies.

"…thank you for great RoboBusiness event! Now we are following up with the connections we made and hope these will be fruitful."

Co-Founder, RightHand Robotics, LLC

This success only adds to the excitement as preparations begin for RoboBusiness 2015 which will be held September 23-25, 2015 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, CA!

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
