Keynote:

The lines between consumer electronics and consumer robotics is blurry. For example, at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the list of robotics companies exhibits has grown to over 400.  Furthermore driverless cars, drones, exo-skeletons, 3D printers and virtual-reality systems are examples of robots that have a consumer focus.  This talk highlights observations of this phenomena. This is given in the context of an Age of Acceleration characterized by deep learning, cloud-computing, and artificial intelligence.  The talk serves to suggest pathways for roboticists and their design and development endeavors.

The Future of Service Robots:

Robots are increasingly specialized for the tasks they are deployed to do in numerous industries, this is the same for agriculture. Agricultural robots need specialized technologies, some robots need to manage the life cycle of crops, others need fast & accurate technologies for harvesting. This session focuses on agricultural robotics which will make farming more efficient.

Keynote - The Future of Service Robots:

The quest to develop accessible exoskeletons suggests less hardware and more emphasis on the ingenuity and creativity during the design process.  This talk will describe an accessible medical exoskeleton recently developed in Berkeley and globally commercialized by suitX.

Phoenix is a modular exoskeleton for personal and at-home use for those seeking medical rehabilitation to allow mobility.  Phoenix’s modular system allows the user to independently put on and remove each piece as desired.  It weighs only 12.25kg.  To date, a top speed of 0.5 miles per hour has been recorded by a Phoenix user. On a single charge, Phoenix can walk for 4 hours continuously or 8 hours intermittently. Phoenix is adjustable for different-sized users and can be easily configured to fit individuals’ specific needs.

Drone Day:

This presentation focuses on the importance of adopting Safety Management Systems (SMS) into professional organizations that operate Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to enhance operational safety, minimize risk, and increase mission readiness. A UAS
Safety Management System (SMS) is a systematic way of identifying hazards and implementing controls while maintaining efficiency and increasing reliability of UAS technology. The learning objectives of this educational session are derived from the aviation industry’s time honored safety management practices. Participants will identify how safety management practices enable an organization in the UAS space to improve the quality of operations and the culture of pilots and operators.

Highly Reliable Organizations (HRO) succeed in avoiding catastrophes in an environment where normal accidents can be expected due to inherent risk factors (examples include: unreliable technology, minimal redundancy, automation dependency). All UAS organizations have an obligation to ensure their flight activities are safe for the people, property, and aircraft around them. By effectively employing industry best practices for SMS, the UAS organization establishes a framework to identify hazards and implement controls, implement effective crew resource management across all levels of the organization, correct irregularities in reporting and training, and establish continuous improvement programs.

When we think about various educational systems around the world, we often do not see opportunities for entrepreneurship and potentially world-changing ideas. We need to rethink the way we approach education to be more hospitable to great ideas—ideas that could improve the very fabric of society. Mohammed explores his journey as founder of Drones For Humanity, as well as resources and opportunities that could help other young founders in the future.
