Recently, we got word from one of our esteemed contacts at Omron, Monika A. Minarcin, that Omron will be a Gold sponsor of this year’s Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) World Congress & Exhibition at Cobo Hall in Detroit — April 12th through 14th. They’ll also be showcasing a mobile Adept Lynx platform among other technologies.
Minarcin manages automotive and semiconductor initiatives at Omron Automation and Safety. We interviewed her on the trend towards automotive-semiconductor convergence — listen to the interview here — late last year.
The SAE event is for the automotive engineering community and lets attendees explore new automotive design and automotive manufacturing technologies through both technical sessions and an Innovators Only Exhibition.
Here are some of the details on what folks from Omron will be presenting … including coverage of Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles (AIVs) in automotive-manufacturing applications, as well collaborative robot system design. Drop us a line if you’re attending!
Keynote: Manufacturing the Future Vehicle in 2025 and Beyond by Matthew Trowbridge of Omron
How will automotive manufacturing really use collaborative robotics, autonomous intelligent vehicles, intelligent sensing, and artificial intelligence to produce true return on investment?
Matt provides a vision for the future of automotive manufacturing.
Integrated Design & Manufacturing: Manufacturing the Next Generation of Connected and Electrified Vehicle by Monika A. Minarcin
Monika will explore some possible directions how automakers and suppliers will need to change …
… and what considerations they will need to account for with respect to data in order to manufacture the next generation of connected and electrified vehicles.
Manufacturing with Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles (AIVs) by Terry Hannon, CMO of Omron Adept Technologies and Keith Kersten
While vehicle and complex component automotive engineering plants have long been at the forefront in using automation within their workshops and assembly lines … now, it may be factory autonomous intelligent vehicles (AIVs) helping to put the pieces together to make autonomous vehicles for the masses. This technical keynote will explore the possibilities for AIVs today and in the near future.
Considerations in Collaborative Robot System Design and Safeguarding by Tina Hull, Product Engineer and TUV Functional Engineer for Omron
Technology advances in industrial robotics has opened up new opportunities for collaborative operation. People and machines working together may include either industrial or collaborative robots, depending on its application.
The introduction of collaborative robots redefines traditional cell design and safeguarding requirements. Tina will explore the differences between traditional industrial and collaborative robot design as well as attempt to define the criteria required for success in collaborative applications.
