Chairman SPRINT Robotics
From its humble beginnings in 2015, with only a small core group of highly motivated participants, SPRINT Robotics has developed into a robust organization with a strong support base of more than 90 organizations globally. It has become the internationally-recognized platform for robotics for I&M. A unique aspect of SPRINT Robotics is that we focus on the value that robotics can deliver to end-user organizations. Robots are a means to an end and not a goal in themselves. Our starting point is always from the asset operator perspective. Robotic developers and suppliers come to us exactly for that reason, we connect real world problems to potential robotic solutions.
In the light of climate change and the importance of sustainability, most countries in the world have recognized the importance of reducing CO2 emissions and climate adaptation. They are embarking on the required changes in their infrastructure . New and rapidly growing industries and their supply chains focused on clean energy and the transition to a low carbon are emerging, and existing industries are adapting. We aims to create synergies between sectors, share knowledge and best practices, as well as connecting leading experts in the respective industries.
We are pleased to present you the journey of the SPRINT Robotics Collaborative. This digital experience enables you to travel through history and future of SPRINT Robotics, and to share our story with your industry peers. Sharing is key as we seek to accelerate the safe and efficient deployment of Inspection, Maintenance & Cleaning robots through industry-wide collaboration.
The SPRINT Robotics Story provides a compact overview how our collaborative is organized. Explore our groups and activities; discover our flagship events ranging from roadshows to the SPRINT Robotics Awards and annual World Conference for Inspection and Maintenance Robotics.
Feel free to reach out to us if you would like to be part of our mission.
SRAP Coordinator: Anthony Biviano (Woodside)
“Bringing industry, end-users, and vendors together to share and develop real use cases progresses innovation and creates a sustainable robotics market to allow all collaborators to thrive.”
SREU Coordinator: Ekkehard Zwicker (Waygate Technologies)
“The European Chapter played an active role in setting up and influencing the European Robotics Roadmap which will help to guide the research activities as well as future research grants into a direction we regard as key for our industry. A main achievement was to get Inspection & Maintenance as one of the four key pillars of robotic activities in European robotic research.”
SRNA Coordinator: Eric Sjerve (IRISNDT)
“SRNA has significantly accelerated the use of commercially available systems by connecting directly with end users at their sites of operation, while also facilitating their continued development supported by asset owner needs.”
