SCL IRC Seminar: Robotics Research and Perspectives
The Supply Chain and Logistics Institute hosts a series of monthly seminars open to interested faculty, students and corporate partners as well as the general public. If you are interested in attending any of the sessions, please review the below information and register online.
Robotic systems have been very successful in performing tasks where the inputs are well defined and known in advance. Automotive and electronic manufacturing are the classic success stories where robotic systems have demonstrated incredible value for the industry. In unstructured manufacturing, the inputs of the system can vary significantly, but the outputs of the system are defined. Food and agriculture production are examples of this type of unstructured manufacturing problem, but traditional manufacturing is also moving in this direction as robotics move beyond welding and painting. This presentation will give examples of systems that integrate advanced perception and control technologies into robotic systems to perform complex tasks like cutting, grasping, and manipulation of objects in an unstructured environment.
In-person attendance to our SCL IRC sessions is complimentary for SCL corporate partners, SCL Industry Advisory Board members, SCL affiliated faculty and students, and students enrolled in the Masters in Supply Chain Engineering program. If you are a member of the general public attending in-person, the cost to attend is $5 per session which includes a boxed lunch*. Virtual attendance is always free.
Please see our registration page relating to taking advantage of the optional in-person lunch.
