The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute is looking for manufacturers and technology providers to complete a major, national survey. The survey aims to identify tools, strategies and guidance that should be prioritized to help manufacturers implement artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) solutions for advanced manufacturing robotic systems.
The survey is being led by the ARM Institute’s Data for Artificial Intelligence Working Group (DAWG). The DAWG aims to develop tools that can decrease the technology gap for manufacturers, so that manufacturers can better understand how to obtain, assess and structure data that’s essential for enabling the use of AI for robotics in manufacturing.
Companies of all sizes looking to advance manufacturing techniques, like AI, ML and robotics, to improve quality, performance and safety, but unsure how to start or maintain these capabilities could benefit from the results of the survey.
This survey will build upon the ARM Institute’s AI Discovery Workshops, which aimed to create a roadmap for AI applications in robotics for manufacturing. For the workshops, the ARM Institute invited a group of leaders representing industry, government and academia to take part in four interactive sessions over a four week period in April 2021.
Manufacturers and technology providers who are interested in taking part in the survey can sign up at the ARM Institute’s website.
Recently, the ARM Institute announced its technology project call. The ARM Institute’s project calls are an opportunity for projects that help bridge the gap between the push of technology and the pull of the need of the robotics industry to receive funding.
The ARM Institute announced eight new robotics technology projects in February 2022. At the time, it planned to award nearly $4 million in funding across the projects. The projects chosen address issues found by the DoD and commercial community to be the most urgent and important.
The ARM Institute won a 2022 RBR50 Robotics Innovation award for its Roboticscareer.org website from our sister publication Robotics Business Review.
