The artwork of constructing robots – #ICRA2022 Day 2 interviews and video digest


Yearly, ICRA gathers an astonishing variety of robotic makers. With a fast take a look at the exhibitors, one can already understand the immense creativity and inventiveness that creators put of their robots. To my eyes, making a robotic is an artwork: how does a robotic ought to appear like? What would it not be good for? Ought to we go for legs or wheels? There are too many questions!

Each robotic maker in all probability has a distinct reply to all these questions, and that’s nice. We’re within the infancy of the patron robotics trade and that lets us be open to all prospects. It’s an thrilling second to see how the massive and numerous ecosystem of robots develops. Many corporations are already driving this evolution of robotics methods, typically dedicated to make higher, safer, and extra environment friendly robots.

That is the case of Clearpath Robotics, producers of state-of-the-art multi-purpose cellular robotic platforms, and PAL Robotics, producers of robots that goal to boost folks’s high quality of life. I met Bryan Webb, President of Clearpath, and Carlos Vivas, Enterprise Supervisor of PAL Robotics, and I requested them about their ideas on the artwork of constructing robots. Under some excerpts from their solutions.
