As part of the RoboBusiness
Conference and Exposition, Carnegie
Robot Hall of Fame will
hold its 2006 induction ceremony on the evening of
Wednesday, June 21, 2006. The Robot Hall of
Fame honor the world’s greatest achievements in
industrial and entertainment robots, as well as
robots from science fiction. The formal Robot Hall of Fame induction ceremony
will follow a cocktail reception sponsored by the
Robot Hall of Fame and Carnegie Mellon University.
Admittance to both the cocktail reception and the
Robot Hall of Fame induction ceremony is
open to RoboBusiness
attendees at no charge.
Past inductees to the
Robot Hall of Fame include some of the most
significant and well known robots in the world
including Honda’s Asimo,
NASA’s Mars Pathfinder and
Unimate, the first industrial robot arm
that worked on the assembly line. The Robot Hall of
Fame jurors are an equally distinguished collection
of international scholars, researchers, writers, and
designers including Gordon
Bell, Arthur C.
Brooks and others.
