Best of The Robot Report Podcast 2021

The Robot Report Podcast

We spent nearly 40 hours talking to leading roboticists, innovative robotics companies, and other key members of the robotics community on The Robot Report Podcast in 2021.

We analyzed the RBR50 Robotics Innovation Awards, the potential downfall of pending regulations in Europe, and how robots are being used to decommission chemical missiles in Kentucky. We got a sneak peek at Boston Dynamics’ Stretch robot, discussed our favorite robotics startups and learned about ease of use, confused robotaxis, major acquisitions, and much more.

Thank you to everyone who tuned in during 2021. We can’t wait to keep the conversations going in 2022 and beyond. As always, if you have suggestions for guests, topics or segments, please let me know.
