RoboBusiness Direct Presents: The Future of Robotics: Research to Commercialization
RoboBusiness Direct presents – The Future of Robotics: Research to Commercialization
Thursday, November 5, 2020 @ 2PM EDT
It’s an exciting time to be in robotics. The $100+ billion global robotics sector has been growing by leaps and bounds. Industrial robots are no longer the exclusive domain of heavy industry or huge factories. A new generation of robotics systems have expanded the customer base for robots to include mid-sized and even small businesses for manufacturing, materials handling, fulfillment, and beyond.
The Covid-19 pandemic has raised the awareness of the value that robots can provide, but it has also highlighted the limitations of today’s robotics systems, and the challenges that must be overcome before robots are deployed in large numbers. Thankfully, researchers are devising ways to make robots more perceptive and dexterous and new technologies are being develop.
MassRobotics and the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative have brought together a world-class team of robotics researchers and industry veterans for this RoboBusiness Direct session.
The session will include a series of rapid-fire presentations and demonstrations designed to give attendees a peek into a variety of areas of robotics research, ranging across the greater robotics landscape, from autonomous vehicles to autonomous surgery, and everything in between.
