Podcast to showcase cutting edge of robotics

ABB series will explore intriguing world of robotics and automation

A weekly panel of experts from industry and academia will be looking at the cutting edge of robotics in the ABB launch, ‘The Robot Podcast’, analysing how advances in automation are benefiting society and business – and what the future may hold.

Whether it’s collaborative robots working alongside humans in laboratories and SME businesses, or industrial robots working in large factories producing the next generation of electric vehicle, robots of all shapes and sizes are making work safer and more efficient for people and companies the world over, states ABB.

Each episode of the Robot Podcast features a panel of experts and takes an in-depth look at some of the most interesting global case studies. Episode one is available now, with a further five episodes landing each Wednesday thereafter from 24 February onwards, with more to follow later in 2021.

The Robot Podcast is hosted by TV presenter and engineering enthusiast Fran Scott. She has worked with the BBC and Channel 4 in the UK, as well as the Royal Society of Chemistry and the British Science and Media Museum. Commenting on the Robot Podcast, she says: “Robots are revolutionising productivity, flexibility and quality of life. Each episode, I’m joined by a fantastic panel of expert guests for an open and interesting talk exploring the cutting edge of robotics – from the exciting new world that robots are helping to build, to dissecting the challenges and opportunities that come with it.”
