ABB is introducing a new series of podcasts that explore the world of robotics and automation, and their benefits to society in what the company describes as “the greatest shift in automation in a generation, brought on by the pandemic”.

Whether it’s collaborative robots working alongside humans in laboratories and SME businesses, or industrial robots working in large factories producing the next generation of electric vehicle, robots of all shapes and sizes are making work safer and more efficient for people and companies the world over.

Each episode of The Robot Podcast features a panel of experts and takes an in-depth look at some of the most interesting global case studies.

The Robot Podcast is hosted by TV presenter and engineering enthusiast, Fran Scott. She has worked with the BBC and Channel 4 in the UK, as well as the Royal Society of Chemistry and the British Science and Media Museum.

Commenting on the Robot Podcast, Scott says: “Robots are revolutionizing productivity, flexibility and quality of life. Each episode, I’m joined by a fantastic panel of expert guests for an open and interesting talk exploring the cutting edge of robotics.
