Robotics: An economic driver for the 21st century
Over the last decade we have started to see a significant pickup in use of robotics and intelligent machines. This includes use of robot technology for reshoring manufacturing, using robot systems to give increased independence to people with disabilities and increasing the safety of first responders. In this presentation we will discuss current advances in robotics and the research frontier for robotics across manufacturing, services, and defense applications. We will use examples from the Georgia Tech IRIM institute to illustrate advances but also try to provide the broader perspective on robotics and its impact across manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, homeland security, and driverless cars.
