robotic systems in hazardous environments presents a variety of both benefits
and challenges. TechNeeds is bringing together robotic experts
from federal agencies, national research laboratories, industry and academia to
address the integration of robotic systems into hazardous work environments and
how they can be used to assist and support the workforce to accomplish high
priority/high risk tasks.
Seminar title: Robots, Sensors
& Humans – Benefits & Challenges of the Implementation of Robotic Systems
in Hazardous Environments
Location: Florida International
University (FIU) in Miami, FL
Date: May 3-4, 2017
following three main panel discussions are planned:
Robots & Sensors for Hazardous Work Environments
Robotic Devices/Smart Personal Protective Equipment
roundtable discussion will follow the panel sessions, focusing on the end user
perspective on the application and deployment of robotic systems and a tour of
the FIU Applied Research Center facilities and live technology demonstrations
of commercially available robotics and robotic technologies under development
will also be included.
Details on the robotics seminar,
including registration information, can be found on the event website: www.techneeds.org
