The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute, a national consortium of 250+ member organizations focused on advancing the state of robotics in manufacturing, have engaged in over 50 projects that focus on moving innovative technologies forward to be used by manufacturers of all sizes in the United States. In this keynote session, several members of the ARM Institute will review the strategies behind project selection, as well as the projects themselves. Project outcomes in all areas of manufacturing – from design through delivery – will also be discussed, and those technologies, methodologies and initiatives which are gaining traction to drive increased use of robots in the United States and globally will also be discussed.
