Yekaterinburg will host an international Symposium on robotics

Next summer, Yekaterinburg will become the country's first venue for the international Symposium on ISR robotics.

The 54th meeting of robot manufacturers and world scientists will be held at the Innoprom industrial exhibition. Experts announced this news at the online session of the Ural event dedicated to business robotics.

In the region, the main focus is on the development of industrial robots that perform most of the tasks of manual labor. Such manipulators are already used in the mining industry, in machine-building plants and metal processing plants, and in the oil and gas industry. The latter, according to analysts, will require the introduction of one million robots by 2030.

- Local enterprises are also integrators of industrial robots, producing products for industrial automation. Two Sverdlovsk enterprises are included in the list of the TOP 30 largest Russian integrators. And for training, universities and colleges cooperate with companies in the industry that provide robotic systems, " says Alexey Orlov, first Deputy Governor of the Sverdlovsk region.

According to robotics manufacturers, small and medium-sized businesses are also ready to invest in such digital solutions. For example, buying a model for the disinfection of the premises or thermometry. The demand for robots in both manufacturing and services is fueled by the second wave of the pandemic and the desire to cut costs, the industry thinks.

- The Russian market has a huge potential, the possibilities of which are not yet exhausted. Only in 2020, its share in the robotics sector can grow by 30-40 percent compared to last year, " said Dmitry Kapishnikov, General Director of the representative office of an international company that recently signed an agreement with the Chelyabinsk plant to localize the production of industrial robots.

As the Executive Director of National Association of participants of the market of robotics Alice Koniuchowsky, bots will actively be applied in logistics processes. Thanks to the ISR in Yekaterinburg, businesses will be able to enlist the support of scientists who are involved in the development of technologies. For example, in the nuclear industry, the Russians have formed a whole scientific school.
