Free Webinar: Large Workspace Robotics and Automation
Join us Tuesday, April 13, 2021, at 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. (U.S. Central Time)
Host: Cody Porter and Meera Towler
Robots come in all shapes and sizes. Within industry, there are many useful things done by commercial off-the-shelf robots. However, in some use-cases and applications off-the-shelf robots must be enhanced to reach very large work areas or process very large parts. In other cases, a unique/custom robot must be conceived and developed to satisfy the application requirements. In this webinar you will learn about some of the world’s largest industrial robots and large workspace applications. Attend this webinar to learn more about what it takes to address large-workspace robotics applications. With over 30 years of experience, well-equipped facilities, and a broad range of technical resources, SwRI is uniquely positioned to conceive, design, manufacturer, and support large workspace systems. Cody Porter and Meera Towler will share some decision criteria to consider if a large robot solution or a COTS solution will meet the needs of an application. In addition, case studies will be presented on how some of these large robots were implemented and how they impact the future robotics industry.
