Daniel Theobald Chief Innovation Officer Speaker at RoboBusiness Conference This Week

Daniel Theobald, Co-Founder and Chief Innovator Officer at Vecna Robotics will be speaking at RoboBusiness Conference in Santa Clara, CA from September 25-27, 2018.

On September 27 from 4:00-4:45 pm, Theobald will present “Using Simulation to Reduce Risk and Improve ROI in Your Automation Project.” He will discuss the evolution of Autonomous Ground Vehicles, also known as AGVs or Self-Driving Vehicles, for materials handling and logistics and the crucial role of AI technologies. Theobald will delve the challenges both first-time buyers, and early adopters of AGV systems experience with this much needed but complex investment decision.

These insights assist plant and operation managers, and material handling specialists understand today’s robotic automation technologies and provide guidance on how to align technology decision making with warehouse maximization strategies.

Daniel Theobald co-founded Vecna in 1998 with the mission of empowering humanity through transformative technologies. Theobald has been at the forefront of robotics R&D in actuation, machine perception, navigation, manipulation, and human-robot interfaces. His work on the Rocky7 Mars rover, BEAR, QCBot, and VGo paved the way for the development of the most robust and flexible suite of Automated Guided Vehicles and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) available. These robots are changing the way things are manufactured, moved, and maintained, enhancing human productivity across sectors.

Theobald is also co-founder and president of MassRobotics, an industry consortium dedicated to fostering the global robotics community. MassRobotics brings innovative startups, industry, and financing together to promote innovation and economic growth. Graduating at the top of his class from MIT where Theobald worked in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, he was honored with the Henry Ford II Scholar Award, an NSF Fellowship, and a Hertz Fellowship award.
