In the second webinar in our Remanufacturing and Industry 4.0 series, we will tackle the topic of robotics. Industrial robots and collaborative robots (cobots) can be used in a variety of applications in remanufacturing and we are excited to discuss those in this webinar. As we have done in past webinars, we will bring together experts on this topic from various perspectives. Following panelist presentations there will be time for questions from the audience.

Subsequent sessions will address other Industry 4.0 topics including Augmented & Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, and Data Analytics.

The registration link will give you the opportunity to submit specific questions in advance, as well as provide feedback concerning topics you would like these sessions to address.
