AI-powered robots continue to expand in use for manufacturing facilities, power plants, warehouses, and other industrial sites. Warehouse bin-picking is a good example. In an e-commerce fulfillment warehouse, human workers need to pick and place millions of different products into boxes based on customer requirements. Deep learning and reinforcement learning now enables robots to learn to handle various objects with minimum help from humans.

In this webinar, you will learn how to empower your robots using deep learning and reinforcement learning for perception and motion control in autonomous robotics applications including robot manipulators, autonomous mobile robots, and UAVs using MATLAB. 


Attendees of this webinar will learn: 

  • Why use AI for robotics
  • What types of AI algorithms and tools to consider for your robot applications
  • Detecting using YOLO and classifying objects for robotics applications
  • Controlling robot motion using reinforcement learning
  • Deploying deep learning algorithms to GPU board as CUDA-optimized ROS nodes 

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
