Keynote – Enabling Autonomous Robotics Through Electrical Engineering
Building machines that can approximate the mobility, dexterity, and agility of people and animals is a grand challenge. Through a combination of advancements in robotic control, AI, and many forms of hardware component technology, we may be on the precipice of a proliferation of massively scalable new robotic automation opportunities. But these kinds of robots represent quite complex design challenges in electrical system design, necessitating technology that encompasses a huge range of subject matter within the electrical engineering discipline. Devin Billings, Associate Director, Electrical Engineering Research at Boston Dynamics, will discuss how robots are overcoming these challenges and what the electrical architecture of a legged robot looks like, how electrical component technology has enabled today's robots, and how electrical engineering can enhance the future of robotic autonomy, mobility, and dexterity.
This keynote session will begin with our presentation of the 2022 Best Paper Awards to the paper authors.
