Details

The Robotics Summit & Expo emphasizes the design and development of commercially viable robotics and intelligent systems products – wholly new products and services that are to be used outside of laboratory environments and sold at a profit.

Dedicated tracks provide technical professionals with the information they need to develop the next generation of commercial class robotics and intelligent systems products and services.

Technologies, Tools and Platforms Track
The development of robots and robotic technology requires the mastery of multiple disciplines – primarily software development, mechanical and electrical engineering. Robotics development is made even more difficult as it is limited by embedded and real-time constraints. But real-time concerns are only the beginning, especially as robots and robotic technology become more prevalent in the home, the workplace, in public places and on the battlefield. The next generation of robots and robotic devices must also be integrated with other systems in their environment.

Solution providers have responded to these difficulties by providing a whole host of robotics design and development tools, as well as ready-made robotic ‘platforms’, that dramatically simplify the job of designing, developing, testing and manufacturing robots and robotic products. Although robotics technology in the various types of robotics systems can differ radically from each other, their areas of commonality greatly outnumber their differences. That is, enabling technologies suitable for one class of products are appropriate and applicable for other types of as well.
