The Robot Report provides engineering, technology and business professionals with a single source for breaking news, product information, independent analysis and in-depth research focused on the development, application and use of robotics and intelligent systems technologies, products and services.
Complete Robotics Solutions Continuum and Value Chain – The Robot Report‘s coverage and analysis includes the full range of robotics and intelligent systems solutions and enablers, including the latest research and breakthroughs coming from research universities and private research institutions. Topics covered in The Robot Report also include robotics supporting technologies such as sensors and imaging systems, actuators and motors, grippers and manipulators, and development tools. The tools and techniques that support robotic cognition, actuation, mobility, navigation and human robot interaction are likewise included. So too are the various robotics platforms including industrial and collaborative robots, mobile robots and AGVs, exoskeletons, UAVs, consumer robots and more. The application of robotics technologies, products and services across multiple industries are also highlighted.
The Robot Report was launched in 2008 by robotics industry veteran Frank Tobe. In July of 2017, The Robot Report was acquired by WTWH Media, LLC.
Engineering the Future of Robotics – The Robot Report is also the producer of the Robotics Summit and Expo, a multifaceted educational forum and exposition dedicated to addressing the technical issues involved with the design, development, manufacture and delivery of commercial robotics and intelligent systems products and services. The Robotics Summit keynotes and general sessions are specifically designed to impart to technical professionals the information they need to successfully develop the next generation of commercial robotics systems, while the Robotics Summit showcase provides attendees with hands on access to the latest design and development solutions for producing robotics and intelligent systems products and services.
