Prototyping for Robotics and Automation


The TC activities focus on prototyping methods, tools and systems for robotics and automation frameworks and applications. Examples of prototyping activities within R&A includes (but not limited to):

  • Robot and Manipulator Prototyping and Design (based on task descriptions or other parameters)
  • Rapid prototyping of devices, sensors, actuators (including web-based manufacturing/ prototyping)
  • Micro/nano systems prototyping and simulations.
  • Automated Manufacturing processes/systems/techniques prototyping and design.
  • Robot-Assisted medical devices prototyping and bio-medical engineering applications.
  • • Information extraction for prototyping.
  • Other emerging new paradigms and technologies applicable to prototyping activities in R&A applications.
