The design of robotics systems provides a unique engineering challenge and one that requires the right design tools for the job, says Bradley Sauln, Onshape Technical Services Engineer. He says much robotic design work has converged around one class of product – CAD systems. But traditional CAD is just the beginning. Modern design shops are now looking for an end-to-end process, a design platform, that does not control how they work but instead enables their creative workflow. Data management, communication, and collaboration are also significant steps in this process often overlooked by the tools used.
At the upcoming Robotics Summit & Expo in Boston, Sauln will describe what he has learned firsthand from robotics designers after working with numerous companies and helping them select design tools that ensure that robotics teams can work closely and react swiftly in an iterative environment.
Sauln’s session, covering challenges for the modern robotics designer, will explain the kind of tools companies need to do robotics work, how CAD is a small part of a much larger, multidisciplinary design process, and the role of real-time collaboration and feedback in robotic development efforts.
The Robotics Summit & Expo is designed to be a multifaceted educational forum and expo dedicated to addressing the issues involved with the design, development, manufacture and delivery of commercial robotics and intelligent systems products and services.
The Conference Program of keynotes and general sessions are specifically designed to impart to professionals the information they need to successfully develop the next generation of commercial robotics systems.
