Expression of interest
I am writing to you because I would very much like to invite you to join the international delegation we will take to Silicon Valley in late September.

To register your interest, please follow the response option link.

In CSIRO we are now gathering an international delegation of relevant stakeholders for assistive automation, robotic, ICT-enabled manufacturing technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) who would like to join us for an inspirational tour to Silicon Valley. We will go there to attend the RoboBusiness Conference where you will learn more about state-of-the-art robotic technologies and their application possibilities including digital systems and robots working side by side with humans to increase productivity, safety and quality for SMEs as well as large corporates.

CSIRO will also have a booth at the conference and interested companies may join us with an exhibit on a first comes first serves basis.

Most importantly, together with our partners Blue Ocean Robotics, the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision and the Callaghan Institute, the days prior to the conference, we are arranging visits at relevant companies and organisations who are either producing transformational robotic technologies or who have implemented them successfully in their organisations. Our partner Blue Ocean Robotics from Denmark has organised such tours in the past for Danish industry and these visits have proven very beneficial for the companies involved, at times resulting in key strategic partnerships and new sales opportunities.
The site visits will be divided into four different categories:
  1. Manufacturing and assistive robotic solutions
  2. Healthcare robotic solutions
  3. Educational robotic solutions for science, technology, engineering, arts and math education
  4. Latest trends in robotic technologies
The program is still under development, but we will most probably visit the following organisations among others:
GE Software, Adept Mobile Robots, Fetch Robotics who have fully autonomous robots for warehouse delivery, pick and pack and more, Pneubotics, 3D Robotics, Savioke, SRI International, Robot Garden, Singularity University at NASA Research Park, UCSF Medical Center who have a fully automated pharmacy, Hansen Medical,   Origami Robotics who work with educational technologies for autism and for learning in elementary school. We will visit Barobo, Suitable Technologies, Wonder Workshop, Fablab@School at Stanford University and more to come.
I have attached the invitation and DRAFT program with further practical details.  I hope you would like to join us in the delegation that already consists of different stakeholders from Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand and China.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
Monday 21 September 2015 to
