Abstract:  “Clearing Hurdles to Commercialization:  From AR to Overlooked Best Practices”

The development of robotics systems requires a thorough understanding of systems engineering, design goals (and a clear delineation of those goals), a rigorous development process, and an adherence to standards whenever possible. Thankfully, powerful new tools and techniques continue to come to market that not only reduce the complexity and time to develop robotics systems, but also allow product concepts to be shared and dynamically tested beginning at the very earliest stages of the development lifecycle. Key among these is augmented reality (AR).

Mark Smithers, CTO of Boston Engineering, will describe how AR and other technologies can reduce uncertainty when developing new robotics systems. Topics include:

  • Introducing AR into the Product Development Lifecycle
  • Applying Tools and Best Practices to Demonstrate Compliance
  • Spotlighting Examples of Smart, Connected Robotics and Technologies
