Autonomous Mobile Robots and Drones in Industry

Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) and industrial drones have gotten a great deal of attention.  In the case of AMRs, the publicity has been more focused on the use of bots in ecommerce warehouses.  But AMRs are also being used on the manufacturing floor.  Harry Chase, Director of Advanced Materials at GE Appliances, will talk about how they are using robots in their operations.  Drones are also being used by industry, for both maintenance and delivery operations.  This will also be discussed.  We will be joined on the panel by executives from GE's AMR supplier - Agilox.  Rick Rys, from ARC, has done research on how drones are being used in industry, and he will join us in the discussion.
