Event Details


We are postponing ROBO Opportunity: Boston because of unfortunate scheduling by the Massachusetts Robotics Cluster of meetings with the government officials in charge of deciding which innovative technology companies will receive the millions of dollars being distributed by Obama's stimulus plan, beginning at noon next Tuesday. Not only do we need to attend that meeting, but a number of those who would like to attend ROBO Opportunity also have to attend.  Sign up at our website for MORE INFORMATION OR AN ONLINE DEMONSTRATION OF MOBILEROBOTS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES.


ROBO Opportunity: Boston

See how autonomous robots are bringing quick ROI to companies and new careers to people now in:


Presenters share “on-the-ground” experience in critical areas such as: automation planning, user acceptance, site review, installation best practices, “indoor GIS” mapping and asset tracking, from MobileRobots Inc --  with over 3,000 robots worldwide -- and technology partners National Instruments, RMT Robotics, Penobscot Bay Media, and CCS Robotics.  In the morning, you’ll see case studies of 24X7 autonomous robots that have driven more than a million miles and in the afternoon have hands-on proof that people with no robot experience can create a working autonomous robot demonstration in an hour with the sophisticated systems available now.

Don’t miss your opportunity to jump-start out of recession with productivity-enhancing robots! Join our growing team of technology partners and users

Economy Got You Down?

Robotics Roadshow Offers ROBO Opportunity in Growth Markets

MobileRobots Inc is taking to the road – in Boston, Detroit, Dallas, Santa Clara and Orlando -- to share its success with businesses and job-seekers looking for growth. MobileRobots’ ROBO Opportunity Roadshow is touring the US to promote the dozens of applications now and the tens of thousands of jobs expected to develop over the next decade in the field of mobile robots. Mobile robots, by the way, are the ones that drive around by themselves and talk, not the industrial arms used to build automobiles.


The public is familiar with only a few mobile robots, like household vacuums and military bomb-defusers. More sophisticated autonomous commercial robots have remained tightly controlled competitive secrets. However, the secrets are getting out, with developers building robotic applications for: facility operation, security, risk reduction, compliance verification, enterprise intelligence, flexible manufacturing, asset tracking, inspection, remote operations, eldercare, disability independence and hundreds of other uses.


When asked, “Why a robot roadshow now?” Sales Director Steven O’Leary replies, “In this economy, companies and job-seekers are desperate to gain an edge. When we held a trial run of the roadshow at our offices, over 200 people applied for ten slots. And it’s no wonder. One of our customers has already signed more business this year than all of 2008. Another first-time VAR is expecting orders for 50-100. We’re projecting growth of at least 100%.”


CTO William Kennedy answers differently, “Intelligent robots are now ready for prime time. When our company began, 14 years ago, PhD’s like me had to program every action. Now non-programmers can task our robots to perform complex functions with simple point-n-click software. They can even customize robots’ personalities with voice, sounds, “friendliness”, “cautiousness” and other characteristics.”


The ROBO Opportunity Roadshow will focus on applications up and running today and the business and career opportunities surrounding them, but it also paints a timeline for how today’s entrepreneurs are laying the groundwork for tomorrow’s exponential job growth, in areas such as:

  • Healthcare and laboratories
  • Security integration, asset tracking and protection services
  • Manufacturing, inspection and testing
  • Facilities management and environmental monitoring
  • Hotel and hospitality
  • Communications
  • Enterprise knowledge management


The ROBO Opportunity Roadshow will be in Boston, April 14, 9AM-4PM at the Back Bay Hilton. Registration is a cost-sensitive $195 for the day-long event, including continental breakfast and lunch. Six companies will describe their commercial robot applications already in use and a dozen more applications about to be adopted. The Roadshow will move to Detroit, June; Dallas, September; Santa Clara, October and Orlando in December.
