The National Robotics Engineering Center (part of the Robotics Institute 
at Carnegie Mellon University) is holding a professional education 
course in robotics on May 21-23, 2013.

The 2 ½-day course gives engineers and managers an overview of robotics 
from a practical perspective.  Attendees will learn about the strengths 
and weaknesses of robotic technologies and how they can be applied to 
solve tough operations problems and enable new product capabilities.  
The course will be taught by NREC faculty and senior technical staff.  
Topics include mobile robots and mobility, positioning, motion planning, 
perception, manipulation, and machine learning.  Case studies on 
commercialization, robot demonstrations, and facility tours round out 
the course.  Attendees can also schedule meetings with NREC senior 
technical staff and faculty to discuss upcoming automation projects.
