Welcome to the Silicon Valley Robotics Influencer series, hosted at HAX and sponsored by Qualcomm Ventures. This topic looks at the robotics toolkit, and asks what's holding robotics back? Do we need better interoperability, affordability or usability?

With the age of robotics upon us, the industry still utilizes an array of tools: Numerous standards, languages, platforms, etc. are being tapped to develop these complex products. In this exclusive Salon event, we ask top experts in the field to hone in on the building blocks that they feel are a necessary part of the “robotics toolkit” and what are the obstacles holding robotics back.
What should developers and engineers consider utilizing when working in robotics and how does the open source and investing community impact these decisions? This question, and more, will be explored during our session.
We offer full refunds for tickets up to one week prior to the event. Silicon Valley Robotics is the not-for-profit industry group supporting innovation and commercialization of robotics technologies.
