Teradyne’s Robotics Group is one of the world’s leading providers of collaborative robot arms and autonomous mobile robots. In 2023, the group generated $375 million in revenue from Universal Robots (UR) and Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR). Teradyne has said its market penetration for robotics is under 5%, leaving Teradyne with plenty of room for long-term growth. In the future, Teradyne said it expects its robotics group to make up 20% of the company’s entire sales.

Ujjwal Kumar, who in mid-2023 was named president of Teradyne Robotics, is keynoting the Robotics Summit & Expo (May 1-2 in Boston). He will share some lessons he has learned and how they can be applied to accelerate the transformation of industry with robotics. Over his 25-plus-year career, Kumar has successfully scaled businesses at major multinationals including General Motors, General Electric, and Honeywell.

Kumar has a Master of Business Administration from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland, and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology.

This will be the largest Robotics Summit ever. It will include more than 200 exhibitors, various networking opportunities, a women in robotics breakfast, a career fair, an engineering theater, a startup showcase, and more!

New to the event is the RBR50 Robotics Innovation Awards Gala. The event will include a cocktail hour, plated dinner, photo opportunities, and the chance to hear from the Robot of the Year, Startup of the Year, and Application of the Year winners. Each RBR50 winner will receive two complimentary tickets to the Robotics Summit and RBR50 Gala. A limited number of tickets are available to attendees, but they’re selling fast.

The Robotics Summit & Expo will be co-located with DeviceTalks, an event focused on medical devices, and the inaugural Digital Transformation Forum. Registration is now open for the event.
