Robotics Industry Day brings together current students, alumni, and career professionals
The Whiting School of Engineering’s Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics showcased its faculty and students’ cutting-edge research and industrial partnerships at Robotics Industry Day, held last week on the Homewood campus.
Representatives from top companies and organizations, including Intuitive, Auris Health, Philips, Verb Surgical, Siemens, and IMMY Inc., attended the annual day-long event that highlighted work in areas such as medical robotics, human-machine systems for manufacturing, and extreme environmental robotics through talks and more than 40 posters and demonstrations.
“This day, which brings people in from the outside to look at and learn about the impressive things we are doing in robotics, is one of the highlights of my year,” said Larry Nagahara, the Whiting School’s associate dean of research, as he welcomed the more than 120 participants to the Glass Pavilion. “I want to encourage all of you to interact with students and faculty, talk about the new ideas and innovations on both sides, and create partnerships to move these ideas forward.”
