Description

Robots are becoming an integral part of our economy, society and planet, assisting us in various tasks. However, the rapid growth in robotics usage has also given rise to relevant concerns regarding sustainability. At present, urgent issues such as rare-earth material usage, e-waste, energy efficiency and ethical concerns hinders the sustainable development of robotics. As we increasingly rely on robotics, it becomes increasingly critical and urgent to ensure that these technological advancements are sustainable and eco-friendly. Since robotics is the integration of many technologies, we will discuss in this Forum sustainable robotics technologies ranging from material science, material processing and metal, electronics with sensors and processing, actuators, energy, power and batteries and control and artificial intelligence.

For in-person attendance, as well as online attendance of the webinar, registration is necessary. please register for both days or choose one of the days by filling out the registration form. This Forum will also be live-streamed on our Youtube channel @BrIAStalks
