Event description

Description

Join us for another meeting of the Robotics Evolution and Development Initiative, Hosted by Vecna Technologies!

Up until now, we have focused on a macro level of the robotics landscape. We now plan to dive into specific verticals to learn how robotics are being utilized in different fields and what is needed to further automate those industries.

This event will be focused on robotics in the logistics. We will have several local robotics companies give brief presentations on their warehousing robot products, followed up by a panel discussion of local supply chain executives on their impressions of robotics, how they have used robotics in their own operations (or why they haven't), and what they look forward to from the industry.

Schedule

  • 6:30 PM - Doors Open
  • 7:00 PM - Opening Remarks, Overview of Logistics Robotics Companies in Boston
  • 7:10 PM - Presentations
  • 7:50 PM - Panel Discussion
  • 8:10 PM - Q&A
  • 8:30 PM - Networking

What is the READI?

The Robotics Evolution and Development Initiative (READI) is a new monthly event by MassRobotics to bring together various stakeholders from both within and outside the robotics community to focus on commercial opportunities in robotics. The READI was started to educate the general public on how the robotics industry is developing; to bring together leading roboticists with other outside experts to discuss opportunities for commercialization and collaboration; and to form a strong community to establish Massachusetts as the world leader for robotics.

Bringing Robotics to Life

The Mission of MassRobotics, a non- profit, is to help create and scale the next generation of successful robotics and IoT companies by providing entrepreneurs and innovative robotics/automation startups with the space and resources they need to develop, prototype, test, and commercialize their products and solutions. In order to create a fertile environment in which visionaries can thrive, we aim to:

  • Offer best-in-class infrastructure and prototyping facilities to enable the unfettered development of robotic/automation systems.
  • Promote cost efficiencies by sharing services such as prototyping and testing space, maintenance support, IT, security, business services, investor introductions, and customer acquisitions.
  • Anticipate needs and roadblocks for entrepreneurs in order to provide the smoothest possible path to growth.
  • Provide innovation and investment back to the high tech community through acquisition opportunities, technology licensing, and facilitated innovation sabbaticals.
  • Develop common-need technology services (i.e. sensors support and standards office) for the MassRobotics community.
  • Inspire the next generation of innovators and builders through in-house, hands-on STEM collaboration and initiatives.

With these goals in mind, we hope to foster a collaborative ecosystem for academic, private, and public key stakeholders that allows the kind of thought-sharing and creative exchange needed to drive the industry forward.
