MassRobotics

MassRobotics is a new, independent, non-profit organization being established in Massachusetts to promote collaboration, learning, and rapid prototype development focused on the technology areas behind robotics, automation and connected devices. One of its roles will be to provide  facilities (office space, test space, machine shop, electronics lab, etc) and business support to robotic startups. MassRobotics hopes to enable innovative collaborations between corporations, universities, and startups within this coalition in a variety of ways. MassRobotics aims to serve as a collaboration space for corporate and academic partners. The idea being that it could support hands-on, technical development teams pursuing rapid prototyping and testing or looking for an immersive innovation space to promote focus and collaboration.

Massachusetts Robotics Roadmap 2015

The Massachusetts Robotics Roadmap graphically shows a concept to product timeline and steps required for product development, testing and market introduction. Massachusetts robotics centers and initiatives are available to provide support and accelerate this timeline and product growth. Government and corporations, as well as universities and entrepreneurs can take advantage of these robotics entities at any point in their product life cycle. The following provides a short description of the Massachusetts robotics centers and initiatives and shows how they are interrelated and help to accelerate the robotic product development cycle from concept to market introduction.
