Greg Smith, president of the Industrial Automation Group at Teradyne, is giving a keynote presentation at the Robotics Summit & Expo. The international event is focused on the technical issues involved with the design, development, manufacture, and delivery of commercial robots. The Robotics Summit & Expo takes place May 10-11 in Boston at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Smith’s keynote, titled “Collaborative Robotics – Resolving the Manufacturing Labor Crisis, Creating New Opportunities,” will discuss the market drivers of human scale automation and present a model of the market potential for collaborative robots to automate dull, dirty and dangerous tasks. Smith will also share his vision for robotics, where people work with robots not like robots. The keynote will take place on May 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.
Teradyne’s Industrial Automation Group includes AutoGuide Mobile Robots, Energid, Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) and collaborative robotic arm leader Universal Robots. In 2021, the Teradyne group brought in $367 million in revenue. Before leading the Industrial Automation Group, Smith was the President of the Semiconductor Test Business, Teradyne’s largest operating segment. Semiconductor Test revenue grew over 50% during his tenure.
