Michigan Ag Connection - 02/08/2019

Business-to-Business publisher WTWH Media announced that Dawn Tilbury, Assistant Director for Engineering at the National Science Foundation and Professor at the University of Michigan, will deliver a keynote address at the 2019 Robotics Summit & Expo. The Robotics Summit, a multifaceted, international event focused on the design, development, manufacture and delivery of commercial-class robotics systems, takes place June 5-6 at the Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, Mass.

According to Dan Kara, conference chairman and vice president, robotics at WTWH Media, "We are delighted to have Dawn Tilbury deliver a keynote at the Robotics Summit & Expo. Dawn is well known and very respected within the robotics community as a researcher in the fields of control systems and human-machine interfaces at the University of Michigan (UM), as well as for her work to launch the Robotics Institute at UM. She is now applying her research experience at the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate for Engineering, which provides academic institutions more than 40 percent of US federal grants for fundamental engineering research and supports technology translation and entrepreneurship."

Tilbury notes, "The National Science Foundation's long term investments in fundamental research have led to robotics that safely partner with people in environments ranging from factories to homes to the deep oceans. The Robotics Summit & Expo provides an ideal forum for exploring how fundamental research and commercial developments cross-pollinate, as well as how collaboration between universities and industries can deliver new technologies and products that benefit society. I look forward to delivering a keynote session at the Robotics Summit, as well as interacting with my engineering and research peers."
