Robotics Engineering Week, produced by Android Report And the WTWH MediaIt will start on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Those wishing to attend can still attend Register for all event sessions.
Despite the huge potential of new robotics-enabling technology and significant social and business drivers, the pace of development of new robotics technologies, products, and services has been painfully slow.
The complexity of developing robotics systems, along with the endless crushing of technological innovation, has hampered innovation and slowed down the launch of robotics products. This, in turn, has put companies – both start-ups and mature ones – at risk.
The webinar is a digital event series featuring keynotes and panels designed to deliver information and guidance to engineers, technical managers, business development professionals, researchers, and more need to build the next generation of business robot systems more quickly and easily.
The full agenda for RoboBusiness is below, and the full conference is over here.
Tuesday 8 November
Session: Intelligent Sensing for Object Recognition, Processing and Control
Proal Shah, Co-Founder and CTO, GrayMatter Robotics, and Jeff Mahler, Co-Founder and CTO of Ambi Robotics
11:00 a.m. ET
Assimilation and manipulation, the ability to directly and physically interact with objects and modify them in the environment, is perhaps the greatest difference between robotic systems and all other classes of robotic systems. Many types of robots make use of advanced sensing solutions—from touch, to vision, deep sensing, and more—to locate, capture, and operate all kinds of objects, with goals ranging from providing human-like dexterity and autonomous manipulation, to highly accurate repetition, down to force And endurance superheroes. During this Robotics Engineering session, attendees will learn about the latest commercially available sensor technologies and techniques to support object recognition, understanding, manipulation and control, as well as solutions emerging from the lab that will allow whole new classes of robotics applications.
Session: Using simulation to design and develop robotic systems
Erin Rabaki Bishop, Senior PMM Robotics & Isaac Sim, NVIDIA
2:00 p.m. Eastern time
The development of robotics and robotic technology requires mastery of multiple disciplines – primarily software development and mechanical and electrical engineering. The development of bots is becoming more difficult because it is constrained by built-in limitations and real-time limitations. Commercial viability adds additional burdens to the bot developer. Solution Providers have responded to these difficulties by providing a full range of robotics design, development tools, simulation and testing tools, as well as off-the-shelf robotic “platforms”, which greatly simplify the task of designing, developing, testing and manufacturing robots and robotic products. this is Robotics Engineering Week The session will provide an overview of current robotics development solutions, as well as highlight development trends.
Wednesday 9 November
Session: Grounding Cloud-Based Robotics Initiatives for Success
Andrei Khuludny, Chief Technology Officer, Wind River, and Brian Jerke, CEO/Co-Founder, Open Robotics
11:00 a.m. ET
Machine learning (and deep learning) technologies and techniques have been very successful in enabling advanced robotics capabilities such as decision-making, object identification, vision processing, autonomous navigation, motor control, sensor integration, and other functions, as well as speech, face, and emotion recognition. Moreover, robotics designers and engineers can also take advantage of different types of distributed implementation architectures — edge, fog, and cloud — to improve their intended systems and applications. While the large and diverse number of machine learning alternatives to developing and deploying robots is beneficial, it can also lead to confusion and indecision, especially given the rapid rate of technological innovation and product introduction. In this Robotics Engineering Week The session, designed to provide some much-needed clarity, attendees will learn how the latest artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies and techniques can be used in land, air and sea systems to make robotics smarter and more functional.
Session: Advanced Motion Control Solutions for Robotic Systems
Brian Quinn, Vice President of Engineering, Harmonic Drive LLC
2:00 p.m. Eastern time
“Movement” in the physical world, whether in the form of a change of place, pose or position, is perhaps the biggest differentiating factor between robotic systems and all other classes of engineered products. It is movement that makes robotic systems “automated,” and advances in motion control technologies have spurred innovation in robotics, and as a result there has been a significant increase in the use of robotics technologies and products worldwide. In this robotics engineering This week’s session, attendees will learn how automated motion control support has improved as new products and technologies are introduced, and how it allows for new capabilities, new applications, and entry into new markets. Case studies and product examples will be used to highlight the highlights.
Thursday 10 November
Session: Intelligent Vision and Sensing Solutions for Autonomous Mapping and Navigation
Paul Beam, Vice President of Product Management and Systems Engineering, DreamVu Inc
11:00 a.m. ET
Commercial robotic systems typically require multiple types of sensors to capture information about the physical world, which after integration and further processing allows them to localize themselves, navigate while avoiding obstacles, and provide additional information. The number, type, and quality of built-in sensors vary depending on the price and target application of the platform. Common sensor types include 2D/3D imaging sensors (cameras), 2D and 2D laser rangefinders, 2D and 3D sonar sensors, 3D High Definition LiDAR, accelerometers, GPS and more. Fortunately, solution providers continue to roll out increasingly low-cost and powerful products, and new sensor technologies are always emerging. In this Robotics Engineering Week During the session, attendees will learn about the latest developments in sensor products and technologies, including use cases highlighting important trends and examples of the latest sensing trends and technologies.
Session: Motion Control for Healthcare Robotics Applications: Functional Requirements and Critical Capabilities
Prabh Gorisankaran, Vice President of Engineering and Strategy, Performance Movement Devices
Healthcare robotics share many areas of technical commonality with electrically powered medical devices, as well as the common goal of improving patient care. However, the main difference is that for all robotics systems movement and movement are expected to be in the physical world. For robotics, movement (and motion control) is assumed to be the definition. As such, motion control technologies and techniques are a central consideration for any robotics engineering initiative. Compared to industrial and consumer motion control technologies, motion control solutions for healthcare applications typically have different, and often very stringent, functional requirements in areas such as safety, reliability, tolerances, cleaning, sterilization, and more. In this Robotics Engineering Week During the session, attendees will learn about the leading functional requirements and critical capabilities of motion control solutions for healthcare robotics applications.
