The scope and breadth of activity is growing exponentially thanks to 3D printing, cloud computing, internet of things and other game changers. From vacuum cleaners to autonomous cars, robots are cleaning our homes, working in our factories and collaborating with humans throughout the world.

To be effective, robots include many aspects along the spectrum of electrical engineering such as solid-state circuits, electronic design, signal processing, cloud computing, etc. In addition, robot and automation activity that impacts human work is under scrutiny in standards, public policy, communications, and marketing regarding.
