Robots Go Green - Sustainable futures
Climate change is transforming our planet for the worse, but can robots provide a sustainable solution? 3D printing in construction could save up to 70% of building materials, and a robot used for painting could save 30% of that paint thanks to being more accurate. From repairing our cities, to remaking marine habitats, host Fran Scott is joined by ABB’s Managing director of General Industry Robotics, Andrea Cassoni; Professor Robert Richardson from the University of Leeds; and Alban Mallet, CEO of XTREEE, to explore the ways robots are helping us to live more sustainably.

Electric Vehicles – The machines that make the machines
Robots are driving change when it comes to electric vehicles (EVs). To reach a greener future, electric vehicles could totally decarbonise transport whilst still enabling us to get from A to B (to B). Host Fran Scott is joined by ABB’s Global Assembly for Robotics Auto OEM, Patrick Matthews; Ade Thomas, founder of Green TV which partnered with ABB to launch the first ever World EV Day, a global celebration of EV ownership; and Isobel Sheldon, Chief Strategy Officer at British Volt, to explore the latest research into batteries and how EVs are the answer to a zero carbon future.

Robots and Food – From farm to factory
The EU food and drink industry employs 4.72 million people. In half of the EU’s 27 Member States, the food and drink industry is the biggest manufacturing employer, and robotics plays an important part. According to a recent survey, almost a third of food processing and 94% of packaging operations use robotics, and that’s only going to keep growing. We live in a world where we want our food delivered almost instantly, but we also want it to be fresh and sustainably sourced. Is that even possible? Host Fran Scott is joined by ABB’s managing director for Consumer Segments and Service Robotics, Marc Segura; Director of the Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology, Professor Simon Pearson; and associate professor for food processing and digitalisation at the University of Lincoln, Dr Janet Bellamy, to find out how the world of robotics is trying to achieve all of that… Part of the ABB Decoded Series of podcasts, The Robot Podcast is a Fresh Air Production.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Cobots in Healthcare – Transforming Medical Services
Collaborative robots are transforming the field of medicine. From lab testing to cleaning hospitals, cobots are releasing medical staff from routine tasks so they can focus on highly skilled and productive work, while ultimately helping more people to receive treatment by dramatically speeding up testing. Host Fran Scott is joined by ABB Robotics Healthcare Global Solutions Line Manager, Chema Collados; Raytheon Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M, Dr Robin R Murphy; and Dr Tom Luby, Director of Texas Medical Centre Innovation, to explore the benefits of having cobots in healthcare.

Robot sidekicks – Meet the Cobots
From testing samples in labs to making computer chips, collaborative robots (cobots) are working together with humans to transform our lives. Cobots are taking on repetitive and mundane tasks and helping create the flexibility and scalability for small and medium-sized enterprises to grow. Host Fran Scott is joined by ABB’s Global Product Manager for Collaborative Robotics, Andie Zhang; roboticist Dr Ayanna Howard from the Georgia Institute of Technology; and Ákos Dömötör, Head of Strategic Sales at Glaub Automation. They meet ABB’s brand-new suite of stronger, faster, more flexible cobots, and explore the innovative possibilities our helpful robot sidekicks make possible.

Robots in 2020 – Here to Help
Safe to say that 2020 was a year like no other. As coronavirus swept across the world, not only were robots able to provide continuity for businesses during the pandemic, but they also helped keep human workers safe. Robotic automation accelerated our ability to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic and in some cases helped businesses reconfigure their production lines to make lifesaving equipment. In this first episode, host Fran Scott is joined by ABB Robotics & Discrete Automation President, Dr Sami Atiya; robotics entrepreneur Dr Pippa Malmgren; and Dr Thomas Bohné from the Institute for Manufacturing at Cambridge University to explore what the robotics industry learnt from 2020, and what’s in store for the robotic future… Part of the ABB Decoded Series of podcasts, The Robot Podcast is a Fresh Air Production.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
