What a man can do, a robot can do better! Although not entirely true. This statement is valid for many industrial and manufacturing floor activities. That’s because robots can be taught to be quite mobile on their own and work in unstructured environments.

This is why companies are investing heavily to develop and deploy the next magical robot that can operate autonomously on the factory floor. And don’t worry about robots taking over – they will be trained to be our companions and partners.

In this episode, the first part of two, Ed Bernardon interviews Marc Theermann, Chief Strategy Officer at Boston Dynamics, which makes the most advanced mobile humanoid robots on earth. He’ll help listeners understand what their robots are used for and the progress they’ve made so far. He’ll also share with us the role that robots can play in solving real-world problems.
