Collaborative Robotics: Could THIS be your next employee?
The Why, What and How of Integrating Collaborative Robots
Most business leaders agree that developing and maintaining a skilled workforce are among their biggest challenges. Collaborative robots, or Cobots, are a new generation of robots revolutionizing factories, warehouses and the service industry with the promise of seamless integration into operations. Unlike their industrial predecessors, cobots are nimble, cost-effective and work alongside workers collaboratively, off-loading repetitive tasks permitting skilled workers to focus on higher value-added tasks.
On February 24th SBANE’s Advanced Manufacturing Committee will host a seminar on the emerging world of collaborative robotics. Intended for CEOs, COOs and other operations managers, the two-hour event will feature presentations from three cobot experts and a panel discussion that answers the following questions:
• What are the economic, political and social dynamics driving collaborative robotics to a $1B market in 2020?
• What is a cobot and how does it differ from industrial robots of the past?
• What are good applications for cobots and what are the implementation details?
• How do I determine when a cobot is economically feasible?
Please join us for this fascinating look into this new world where cobots will assist us at work.
WPI has generously offered to provide a tour of their robotics lab following the presentation by the panelists.
Dan Kara, ABI Research, a leading robotic researcher
Jim Daly, Rethink Robotics, a forerunner in the development of collaborative robotics
Dan O’Brien, Gibson Engineering, a pioneer in the integration of collaborative robotics
Ray Ritter, Lighthouse Strategix, an industrial robots implementer for 28 years
Cost: $30 SBANE Members and $50 Non-Members
