Stanley Innovation’s VP of Operations Jason Walker will lead a panel of industry experts in a discussion of how to accelerate robotics initiatives during the upcoming Robotica 2016 summit.
The event, sponsored by the Association for Unmanned Vehicles International (AUVSI) New England, takes place June 6-9 at 31 Andrews Pkwy, Devens, MA 01434. The annual event brings together unmanned and robotic systems companies to showcase their capabilities and technologies to a broad audience of end users and developers.
Attendees are encouraged to use the hashtag #Robotica2016 on social media.
As the moderator of a June 7 informative session on Robotics Initiatives, Walker will lead a discussion on ways to accelerate the development and use of robots that work beside or cooperatively with people — emphasizing the importance of partnering with robotics companies like Stanley in order to get a head start on your robotics initiative.
“We want the audience to walk away feeling like they have an understanding of the effort required to accomplish a robotics initiative,” said Walker. “We want the audience to feel like they know what kinds of questions to ask, and what kinds of answers to expect. And most importantly, we want people to know that there has never been a better time in history to start a robotics initiative, because there has never been as many tools, partners, or enabling technologies as there is today.”
Walker said Tuesday’s discussion will focus on the key elements of every robotics initiative, which include:
Matt England, Vice President, Government Systems, CyPhy Works
Hanumant Singh, Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northeastern University
Dan O’Brien, President, Gibson Engineering
Harald Quintus-Bosz, co-founder and CTO of Cooper Perkins
Daniel Villemaire, President, C&M Machine Products
The panel takes place on June 7, from 2:05-3:15pm in Salon A. Stay tuned for updates on Stanley’s involvement in Robotica 2016, including key takeaways from the annual robotics summit.
