Warehouse logistics and advanced manufacturing are increasingly using robotics as a critical part of their automation strategies. Robots can improve operational efficiency, improve safety, and help companies address the persistent labor shortages that are being observed across the globe. Developing these intelligent robotic systems, however, is a complex, challenging, and costly undertaking. Thankfully, advanced simulation tools are available to engineers that can speed the design, development, and testing processes.
Gerard Andrews, Senior Product Marketing Manager of Robotics at NVIDIA, will discuss how to use NVIDIA’s Isaac Sim for robotics development. His talk at the Robotics Summit & Expo called “Using Simulation to Design and Develop Autonomous Robots” will take place at the Boston Convention Center on May 11 at 11:30 AM.
This talk will describe the many ways NVIDIA Isaac Sim can be used to accelerate the development and deployment of robots, including advanced AI and computer vision. Specifically, attendees will learn how simulation can test robot applications in photo-realistic, physically accurate digital twin environments. In addition, the robots can be placed in increasingly complex simulations involving digital humans and fleets of robots to optimize operational KPIs. This session is designed as an introduction to photo-realistic 3D simulation for robots and is appropriate for all levels.
Andrews is focused on revolutionizing the way intelligent robots are developed, trained, tested and deployed by driving the adoption of the NVIDIA Isaac Robotics platform. Prior to joining NVIDIA, he was at Cadence where he was Product Marketing Director, responsible for product planning, marketing, and business development for licensable processor IP. He holds an MS in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a BS in electrical engineering from Southern Methodist University.
You can find the full agenda for the Robotics Summit here. The Robotics Summit & Expo is the premier event for commercial robotics developers. There will be nearly 70 industry-leading speakers sharing their development expertise on stage during the conference, with 150-plus exhibitors on the show floor showcasing their latest enabling technologies, products and services that help develop commercial robots. There also will be a career fair, networking opportunities and more.
