True Human-Robot Collaboration in the Surge

Mar 17, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

In the face of accelerating automation, workforce development is more crucial than ever to tackle supply chain constraints and labor shortages across the globe. While industrial automation has been around for 40 years, it's only with advances in 2D, 3D and AI imaging that robots have the hand-eye coordination to cope with the variability of packages seen in today's warehouse. Technological advances mean robots can take on dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks — elevating human workers to higher-value positions. But what are companies doing to train and retain workers? Businesses are wise to create programs that ready the workforce for the new roles resulting from greater automation. In this session, you'll learn how humans and robots collaborating is the solution.
