Come Celebrate the Massachusetts and New England Robotics EcoSystem

Massachusetts is home to perhaps the most advanced robotics cluster in the nation. At the heart of this cluster are 35 robotics focused research and development programs across ten institutions in the state. Another eight institutions across New England have programs in nearby states. 150+ robotics companies with land, air, sea, mobile, stationary, autonomous, health, marine, agriculture, logistics, and more, the Massachusetts cluster is pushing the boundaries of intelligent automation in many fields. 

   •  Help us celebrate the Massachusetts and New England Robotics EcoSystem 
   •  See live robotic demonstrations from companies in the area 
   •  Learn about the regions robotics test facilities
   •  Meet international attendees from Boston's RoboBusiness conference
   •  Refreshments will be served

Exhibiting companies to provide demos include:

 Adept Technology
Since 1995 when we launched Pioneer, Adept MobileRobots has grown to be a global leader in the design and manufacture of intelligent mobile robots. We continue to provide the world's leading platforms for mobile robotics research. 

  Aldebaran Robotics
Aldebaran Robotics makes and markets humanoid and programmable robots. A worldwide leader in humanoid robotics, formed in 2005, Aldebaran set out to create a family of companion robots that positively influence our daily lives. Interaction would be the key to success. They are also for education, reception, assistance, entertainment, and even autism therapy.

  Clearpath Robotics
Clearpath Robotics, a global leader in unmanned vehicle robotics for research and development, is dedicated to automating the world’s dullest, dirtiest, and deadliest jobs. The company collaborates with robotics leaders in Massachusetts including MIT, WPI, University of Massachusetts and Mathworks. Clearpath Robotics designs award winning mobile robotic systems including Husky UGV, Grizzly RUV and Kingfisher SUV.

  Empire Robotics
Empire Robotics is a team of soft robotics experts and the makers of VERSABALL, an agile robotic gripper leveraging granular jamming. VERSABALL is being used to solve unique challenges in industrial automation and is leading soft robotics into commercial application to fundamentally change the robotics landscape.

Energid’s Actin software drives sensor-guided manipulation, autonomous grasping and straightforward control of complex robotic systems for medical, energy, transportation, agriculture, and industrial applications.
Robai makes compact, dexterous, approachable robots for task automation in human-centered environments. Our Cyton robot arms, powered by Energid's Actin software, are trainable by anyone and deliver unprecedented ease of deployment.

iRobot designs and builds robots that make a difference. The company's home robots help people find smarter ways to clean, its defense & security robots protect those in harm's way, and its remote presence robots enable virtual presence from anywhere in the world. iRobot's robots feature proprietary technologies incorporating advanced concepts in navigation, mobility, manipulation and artificial intelligence.

 KTS Associates
We represent the finest producers of custom mechanical and electrical components. Our mission is to provide professional sales and engineering solutions to manufacturers across a wide spectrum of industries. KTS Associates is built to offer the stable, responsible, and ethical promotion of our principal's products to the established community of manufacturers in our territory.

Ras Labs believes in developing, fabricating and distributing customized products that have the power to heal and save lives. Ras Labs produces Synthetic MuscleTM, electroactive polymer (EAP) based materials and actuators that contract and expand at low voltages. The Ras Labs mission is to use Synthetic MuscleTM to make robotics and prosthetics, particularly for the hand, that work, feel, and appear human.

 Rethink Robotics
For decades, production robots have been separated from people by protective cages, programmed only by specialized engineers, and affordable by a small percentage of manufacturers. Rethink Robotics is changing that paradigm. And in doing so, we are redefining what’s possible with automation. Our robots work side by side with skilled labor, are trained interactively, and provide a rapid ROI for companies of all sizes.

 ReWalk Robotics
ReWalk Robotics develops, manufactures and markets exoskeletons for people with Spinal Cord Injury. ReWalk Robotics is the developer of the ReWalk™, a robotic exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable those with Spinal Cord Injury to stand upright, walk and turn. ReWalk is the ONLY exoskeleton with FDA clearance for Rehabilitation and Personal use.

 Rise Robotics
Rise Robotics empowers robotic designers. We believe robots will do for the human body what the computer has done for the human mind. We design and manufacture linear actuators for robotic businesses who want stronger, faster, and cheaper mobile manipulation. Rise Robotics solves the power density problem for mobile robots.

  The MathWorks
MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software. MATLAB, the language of technical computing, is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation. Simulink is a graphical environment for simulation and Model-Based Design for multidomain dynamic and embedded systems. Founded in 1984, MathWorks employs more than 3000 people in 15 countries, with headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, USA. @MathWorks

Vecna empowers humanity through transformative technology. Founded in 1998 by a consortium of MIT engineers, Vecna remains a profitable, privately-funded company. Vecna uses technology developed by its innovation center, Vecna Labs, to build intelligent autonomous solutions for all industries. Vecna Labs balances cutting-edge development with a strong record of commercialization. Vecna's team of multidisciplinary scientists and engineers develop technologies that improve situational awareness for machines and humans, revolutionize manufacturing and distribution processes and technologies, and accelerate new products to market.
  VGo Communications
VGo replicates a person in a distant location, enabling them to: see, hear and talk, while having the freedom to move around as if they were physically there. For healthcare staff and doctors, students, remote workers, and visitors in healthcare, education, and business, VGo is a flexible tool that can be applied to a wide variety of organizational and financial problems.
