Traditional sensors and navigation stacks have enabled AGVs and AMRs to bring tremendous value to a finite set of indoor material handling applications. But a much broader set of additional applications remains unsolved due to limitations in more challenging environments, including outdoor, indoor/outdoor, spaces with dynamic or repetitive features and where mobile robots must interact seamlessly together with humans.
At the Robotics Summit & Expo in Boston on May 10, in the panel “Unlocking New Applications for Mobile Robots, Niels Jul Jacobsen, CEO of Capra Robotics, Steve Boyle, CEO of Essential Aero, Amir Bousani, Founder and CEO of RGo Robotics, and Mike Oitzman, robotics editor at WTWH Media and founder of the Mobile Robot Guide, will discuss how recent technology advances are setting the stage for the next wave of innovative mobile robots and share examples of exciting new applications that will be unlocked. The panel will take place at 4:15 PM.
Capra Robotics build mobile robots for both indoor and outdoor usage. Jacobsen has worked in industrial robotics and automation for more than 30 years. He is the founding father of Mobile Industrial Robots (MIR) and was on the board of Universal Robots from 2008-2015. He holds an MSc in Computer Science Technology and a Graduate Diploma in Finance from the University of Southern Denmark.
Essential Aero automates airfield operations using robots, both in the air and on the ground. Boyle is a series entrepreneur who has started successful tech companies in telecom, mobile applications, aviation, security, and now robotics, which requires all these domains and more. Essential Aero is located in the greater Sacramento area of CA.
RGo Robotics is pioneering an artificial perception technology that enables mobile robots to understand complex surroundings and operate autonomously just like humans. Before founding RGo Robotics, Bousani lead the Advanced Technologies and System Innovation Groups at Intel RealSense.
