Deploying 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
The following three main panel discussions are planned:
A 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.
- Mobile Robots & Sensors for Hazardous Work Environments
- Human/Robot Interaction
- Wearable Robotic Devices/Smart Personal Protective Equipment
