Robotic-Enabled Facilities Seminar in Houston

Robotic-Enabled Facilities Seminar

ExxonMobil Houston Campus

The SPRINT Robotics Collaborative is proud to present a one-day seminar on Robotic-Enabled Facilities, which will be held in Houston, Texas on February 27, 2020 in collaboration with ExxonMobil. The seminar aims to facilitate the practical implementation of robotic technology deployment with the use of enhanced facility design or modification. Program topics include process management, precedents for the use of robotic technology, cultural shifts for the adoption of robotic-enabled facilities, and the implementation of next-generation structures.

The Robotic-Enabled Facilities Seminar includes presentations by leading Oil & Gas operating companies as well as engineering, procurement and construction companies. The seminar will also facilitate interactive sessions, work groups and panel discussions, concluding with a networking dinner that evening in the surrounding area.
The interactive sessions and work groups will focus on a report recently released by the SPRINT Robotics’ Remote Operator Action Group (AGRO), which addresses the challenges of implementing remote operator robotics.
After the seminar there will be a Networking Dinner for Seminar & North American Chapter Meeting guests.

The Robotic-Enabled Facilities Seminar is open exclusively to SPRINT Robotics (Associate) Participants.
Registration information has been sent via e-mail directly to SPRINT Robotics (Associate) Participants.
