Tour of Silicon Valley Robotics Companies 2016
Sunday, 25 September 2016 at 6:00 PM - Tuesday, 27 September 2016 at 5:00 PM (PDT)
Please note registrations for the Tour of SIlicon Valley Robotics companies close on 1st September.
Join us with an international delegation to explore robotics companies in Silicon Valley in late September and attend the RoboBusiness conference in San Jose.
Together with our partners CSIRO, and Blue Ocean Robotics, we are arranging visits to companies and organisations who are either producing transformational robotic technologies or who have implemented them successfully in their organisations. We organised the first of these tours for Australian companies last year and the visits have proven very beneficial for the companies involved, at times resulting in key strategic partnerships and new sales opportunities.
The site visits will be divided into three different categories:
- Industrial robotics
- Educational robotics
The companies we intend to visit as part of these streams include:
Modbot, IRIS Automation, AusTrade's San Francisco Landing Pad, Auro Robotics, Fellow Robots, US Defence Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx), Singularity University, TUG Hospital Logistics Robots at UCSF Medical Center, Barobo, Suitable Technologies, Wonder Workshop, Roboterra, BioBeats, and DashRobotics.
The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision, Blue Ocean Robotics, and CSIRO have put together the tour program's Industrial track but you are welcome to join any of the tracks.
We hope the tour will help bring Australian companies with similar robotic interests together.
