National Science Foundation’s Dawn Tilbury To Keynote at Robotics Summit & Expo

Assistant Director of the Directorate for Engineering at the National
Science Foundation will discuss the Future of Work at the
Human-Technology Frontier at international event for developers of
commercial class robotics products and services

CLEVELAND & BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Business-to-Business publisher WTWH Media announced that Dawn Tilbury,
Assistant Director for Engineering at the National Science Foundation
and Professor at the University of Michigan, will deliver a keynote
address at the 2019 Robotics Summit & Expo. The Robotics Summit, a
multifaceted, international event focused on the design, development,
manufacture and delivery of commercial-class robotics systems, takes
place June 5-6, 2019 at the Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA.

According to Dan Kara, conference chairman and Vice President, Robotics
at WTWH Media, “We are delighted to have Dawn Tilbury deliver a keynote
at the Robotics Summit & Expo. Dawn is well known and very respected
within the robotics community as a researcher in the fields of control
systems and human-machine interfaces at the University of Michigan (UM),
as well as for her work to launch the Robotics Institute at UM. She is
now applying her research experience at the National Science
Foundation’s (NSF) Directorate for Engineering, which provides academic
institutions more than 40 percent of US federal grants for fundamental
engineering research and supports technology translation and
entrepreneurship.”

Dawn Tilbury notes, “The National Science Foundation’s long term
investments in fundamental research have led to robotics that safely
partner with people in environments ranging from factories to homes to
the deep oceans. The Robotics Summit & Expo provides an ideal forum for
exploring how fundamental research and commercial developments
cross-pollinate, as well as how collaboration between universities and
industries can deliver new technologies and products that benefit
society. I look forward to delivering a keynote session at the Robotics
Summit, as well as interacting with my engineering and research peers.”
