Do you work in robotics, and where?

I have spent my career making sure that robots and humans don't have wrestling matches.

Have you studied robotics, and where?

I have been to over 200 manufacturing facilities to study and consult on automation.

What is your interest in Silicon Valley Robotics?

I have many interests. Two of them would be to continue to assist in the creation of vision systems, and the other would be to see that the allure of low-cost manufacturing labor that has pushed products to be made on other continents from where they are consummed comes to and end dur to the abundant availability of easily programmed and highly flexible robotic systems for manufacturing.


I am a Silicon Valley Native who has spent most of my career in Industrial Automation, specifically with IR LED Electro-Optic Presence Sensing preventing robots and humans from co-mingling (the same technology used for autonomous guided vehicles).
