Mouser Electronics recently released a video that features engineer Grant Imahara and a panel discussion from the 2018 Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) Executive Conference. The panel discussion lasts an hour and is titled “How Robotics Will Shape Our Future.” This is the final episode of the Generation Robot series from Mouser’s Empowering Innovation Together program.
In the video, the panel delves into discussion about how robotics are constantly reshaping the way individuals work and live as autonomy continues to proliferate everyday tasks.
Included in the panel is:
- Ayanna Howard, Professor and Chair of the School of Interactive Computing in the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology
- Magnus Egerstedt, Steve W. Chaddick School Chair and Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology

“The 2018 EIT series from Mouser has been one of the most interesting projects of my career,” stated Imahara. “I’ve been able to share my love of robotics and really highlight the innovations that prove we are definitely living in ‘Generation Robot’ — where humans and robots coexist on all levels of life and work. Seeing what comes next will be truly mind blowing.”
