ProMat 2015—Find What's Next | March 23-26, 2015 | McCormick Place South - Chicago, IL USA

CHICAGO--It's only fitting that the year's largest expo focused around supply chain technology and innovation features an appropriately big-time keynote speaker.

Enter Steve Wozniak, or "The Woz" as he is affectionately known by his fans, who launched one of the most successful tech companies in history along with the late Steve Jobs.

ProMat attendees will have the unique opportunity to hear Wozniak live, in-person during a keynote presentation on March 25 during ProMat 2015 at Chicago's McCormick Place.

Wozniak will discuss the secrets of being a successful entrepreneur, the value of creativity and how to drive it and how he thinks technology will affect our lives and supply chains in the years to come.

Drawing on his more than 50 years in the high-tech industry, his business accomplishments and his unparalleled access to some of the world's greatest minds, Wozniak will provide a preview of what's next in technology.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
