A few days ago, I was elected as President of the IFR. I succeeded Joe Gemma. He successfully followed the mission, to deliver a better understanding about what drives the rapidly changing world of robotics. As new President together with the new Vice President, Steven Wyatt, I will carry his mission forward - for the International Federation of Robotics. Robots increase productivity and competitiveness. Robots have been enablers for the industry development for automobile, semiconductor, distribution and so on. The quality of work has improved. Dangerous, tedious and dirty work is being transferred from human to machine.
2018 looks to continue the energy and excitement with multiple events that will have IFR or IFR member associations participation.
automatica 2018 (19-22 June 2018), Munich
CiROS 2018 (4-7 July 2018), Shanghai
INNOPROM 2018 (9-11 July 2018), Ekaterinburg
TAIROS 2018 (29 Aug – 1 Sep. 2018), Taipei
Robot World 2018 (10-13 Oct. 2018), Goyang-si
World Robot Summit (17-21 October 2018), Tokyo
Looking forward to another record year in 2018.
