RoboBusiness speaker Daniel Theobald, co-founder and chief innovation officer of Vecna, says until recently, large-scale use of mobile robotics in industry was still aspirational. But now, given increasing consumer expectations and global competition, “automate or die” is becoming an accepted idea in business.
Applications for 3D printing continue to evolve. Here are five uses cases that might surprise you.
Dr. Martin Buehler, Executive R&D Imagineer with Walt Disney Imagineering, will deliver the opening keynote at RoboBusiness 2017. Buehler will share how Disney has enhanced robotic characters to create deeper and more meaningful connections with Disney theme park guests.
Despite all the hype, AI systems get lost all the time, just like humans. The issue that caused Knightscope’s K5 security robot to fall into an indoor water fountain is a pesky, seemingly trivial sensor problem that has plagued robot autonomy and AI for decades.
Roboticists have unveiled robots that can be deployed in interesting new ways through growing and unfolding, giving them useful access to all kinds of nooks and crannies.
Robo Business Media has announced that it has chosen the city of Rotterdam as the location of RoboBusiness Europe and TUS Expo 2018.
RoboBusiness Pitchfire offers robotics startups five minutes to pitch their business to a panel of renowned venture capitalist judges and a packed room of RoboBusiness attendees.

Both robotics industry professionals and end users seeking to adopt or scale up robotics within their companies will discover programming and special events tailored to address their unique challenges.
Colorado passed its first law to regulate self-driving vehicles to attract companies to test the technology in the state. The law allows self-driving vehicle testing as long as operators obey existing road rules.
The University of North Texas attached a portable communication system to a drone that provides instant cellular coverage up to 1.25 miles during disaster relief operations.
A federal court rules the FAA’s mandatory recreational drone registration violates Section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act that Congress passed in 2012. For now, drones used for recreational purposes don’t need to be registered with the FAA, however, drones used for commercial purposes still need to be registered.
Germany passed a law that allows self-driving car tests on public roads. A human driver needs to be behind the wheel at all times, and the cars need to have a black box that tracks data in case of accidents.
The Active Pelvis Orthosis is a smart exoskeleton that recognizes in just 350 milliseconds a person has lost their balance. The exoskeleton then applies force to the hips to counterbalance the slip and prevent a fall.
EduExo is a 3D-printable, Arduino-powered kit for students, hobbyists and educators that teaches how to build exoskeletons.
