RoboBusiness 2016 Highlights with Behind the Scenes Interviews

The 12th Annual RoboBusiness conference and trade show – a highly anticipated exhibition of state-of-the-art robotics – was held in Silicon Valley at the San Jose Convention Center on September 28 – 29, 2016.  One of the largest robotics conferences in the nation, this prestigious gathering featured the latest in bleeding edge automation.

Among the presentations we recorded was an industry state-of-the-nation overview by Tom Green, editor-in-chief of Robotics Business Review. Tom noted that China, Japan and Korea are at the forefront of the new robotics-based “4th industrial revolution.”

Green recounted how Fanuc and Cisco created feedback loops that enabled “zero downtime” production, generating $80million in savings this year, alone.  Other feedback loops in data collection revealed why parts fail and how to manufacture better products as the factory floor evolved into a research laboratory.
