There has never been greater need for using robotics to optimize industrial automation. And there has never been a better time to reap advantages of robotics in the industrial arena. Still industrial robotics need to advance in their capabilities to deliver the benefits that industrial and vertical segments require. This calls for new intelligent technologies to come to the operating edge where robots will be operating.

Join this online expert panel discussion to connect with technology experts from Wind River, a leader in intelligent edge platforms, and Arm, a global leader in semiconductor design and silicon intellectual property development and licensing, to discuss the current state of industrial robotics and the intelligent edge technology that will advance next-generation robotics into new capabilities and use cases for the industrial market and other segments.

Join us to dive into:

  • The current challenges facing the use and expansion of robotics
  • How collaborative robots (cobots) are working side-by-side with workers
  • The intelligent edge technologies that can deliver new robotic capabilities
  • How robotics uses will evolve over the coming years
