Association for Advancing Automation to hold event for humanoid robots

The latest technology and application advances for humanoid robots will be the focus of the Humanoid Robot Forum hosted by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3) on Monday, October 7, at the Renasant Convention Center in Memphis, Tennessee.

The new educational conference will be held in conjunction with A3’s successful Autonomous Mobile Robots & Logistics Conference, sponsored by FedEx, on October 8-10, also at the Renasant Convention Center.

The previous Autonomous Mobile Robots & Logistics Conference in Memphis in 2021 attracted over 650 industry leaders.

Jeff Burnstein, president of A3, says: “With all of the new developments in humanoid robots, we believe the timing is right for the industry’s first humanoid robot forum.

“Our focus will be on the present state of the technology, current humanoid applications in logistics and manufacturing, and the future outlook for humanoids in industry as well as in our daily lives.”

Melonee Wise, Chief Product Officer of Agility Robotics, and Jeffrey Cardenas, CEO of Apptronik, are featured keynote speakers. The full lineup of speakers will be announced this summer.

The Humanoid Robot Forum will feature talks on enabling technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine vision, grasping and motion control, as well as safety considerations for humanoid robot applications.

Anyone interested in participating at the Humanoid Robot Forum as a speaker, exhibitor, sponsor or attendee should visit the Automate website for more information.
