Thank you to everyone who hosted, promoted, and participated in National Robotics Week 2017! With your continuing help, we had over 300 events for Robo Week. The ninth annual National Robotics Week will be held April 7-15, 2018 and promises to be even bigger! Submit your own event!
Host An Event
Remember it can be everything from bringing a robot to the library, to a demo at the science center, to a huge robot carnival! We just want to share the excitement of robotics around the US. If you hosted an event for 2017, thanks for joining us and please tell us about your event here.

Future of Collaborative Robots,
Traditional industrial robots have been difficult to integrate into factories, especially small factories. They need to be caged for safety and need to have long production runs in order to be economically viable. Rethink Robotics has tackled these problems and developed a new low-cost robot that is being adopted in a variety of production environments. Baxter is a two-armed robot -- with seven degrees of freedom on each arm -- available to researchers. Rethink Robotics believes that once there are thousands of people with access to open source manipulators, they will invent all sorts of new applications for robots, in health care and in elder care.
