The Robotics Industries Association (RIA) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) are co-sponsoring the 2004 North American Robot Safety Conference from March 24 to 26 in Toronto. Attendees will have the chance to learn to apply the Z432–Safeguarding of Machinery standard to a robot system environment; learn about accident prevention strategies; participate in panel discussions with technical experts; and share in case studies on integration projects, including working with an integrator. For information on the conference, including a list of exhibitors, visit www.roboticsonline.com/public/calendar/index.cfm.
These free camps are designed for children ages 10 to 18. Attendees are introduced to 3D CAD software and shown how 3D printers can make their work a reality. Many classes were nearly 50 percent girls and 50 percent boys.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
