SWISS ROBOTICS DAY
LAUSANNE, 4 NOVEMBER
THE AGENDA OF THE EVENT IS NOW LIVE ON THE WEBSITE
While industries are now using robots at a very large scale, for example to do the jobs that are dangerous, unpleasant or boring, the field of robotics is evolving and transforming at a very fast pace. The next generation of robots will use artificial intelligence and automation to streamline more and more jobs which are currently done by humans. Robots will become ubiquitous in logistics, in rescue operations, in healthcare, in education, in services and will be assisting the elderly and people living in isolation. There is also no doubt that robotic technologies will transform the nature of work and the workplace itself.
The Swiss Robotic Day will focus on the new market trends for robots. It will be taking place this year on the 4th of November in Lausanne, at the Beaulieu SA.
> Distinguished speakers this year include world-class robotics experts and professors:
– Prof. Robin Murphy (Texas A&M University), who will present the current state and challenges of rescue robotics
– Prof. Auke J. Ijspeert (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne), who will discuss the advances in the field of amphibious robots
– Dr. Elena García Armada (Spain CSEC), who will present the world’s first adaptable robotic exoskeleton for children
– Prof. Raffaello D’Andrea (ETH Zürich), who will describe the revolutions taking place in the warehouse, where more and more mobile robots and autonomous drones are active
– Thierry Golliard (Swiss Post), who will explain how the Swiss Post Office is integrating robotics in its daily operations
– Dr. Adrien Briod (Flyability) who will cover the story of what was once a small laboratory spin-off, and how it became one of the world’s leading drone companies.
> A special round table will discuss the future of jobs in the context of the growing automatisation of the workplace.
>Over 60 exhibitors will present the latest Swiss technologies and industrial demonstrators, while start-ups and research groups will be displaying their innovations. A flying zone will also let visitors see some of the most innovative flying robots in action.
> A broad range of activities will make the event a dynamic and enjoyable experience:
– Facilitated matchmaking and networking organized by the NTN Innovation Booster – Robotics will take place to promote exchanges, spark conversations, collaborations and partnerships.
– A job market will enable companies to recruit the most talented students / recent graduates and explore how they can help support the development of the business solutions that will be required in our new world.
The event will be followed by a public day on November 5th.
