Mälardalen Real-Time Research Centre has the honour to invite you to its 4th annual industrial seminar. The focus of this year's seminar is on robotics, both from an industrial and an academic perspective. Today robots are mainly used in industrial manufacturing systems for welding, assembling etc. The users are big manufacturers with high volumes and high competence. In the future we will see an increasing use of robots in smaller enterprises with less money available to invest in expert competence, but also in new areas such as care and services. In this seminar you will be able to listen to exiting talks from different areas presented by world leading researchers in both academia and industry. This year we are happy to welcome Erik Sandewall, Professor and leader of the Vitas project.

Lars Asplund,
