Manufacturers have been using robotics on the factory floor for decades but the mass production and introduction of this technology into everyday life poses many unique challenges.
Robotics technology has the near-term potential to transform the factory floor, our homes, highways and crucial transportation, delivery, and logistic (TDL) networks. The midwest is well poised to meet these challenges with our strong concentration of manufacturing talent and infrastructure based on the automotive and defense industries.
These strengths, coupled with the NCMS collaborative model of bringing together end users, technology developers and integrators can make the United States the global leader in robotics.
Please answer the following questions to help us gauge your interest in developing a thriving healthy ecosystem of industry, government, and academia to meet this national challenge.
