International speakers
Besides Kim Liebregts a host of other international speakers are scheduled to present during the International Robotics Week. Frederik Brantner, CEO & Founder Magazino, will tell participants of the Intralogistics track about the revolution that is changing the way warehouses work. How do robots contribute to this and what benefits will this have?

In the robotics for healthcare track, Marcelo Ang, National University of Singapore Advanced Robotics Lab, will talk about the need for “soft robotics” and the various forms these robots come in. It is important to make robots safe for human-robot interaction. “Softness” can be achieved using softer and non-metallic materials; or through advanced sensing and control.
