Columbus Tech Talk teaches public robotics

School, firm partner for new event

Purdue Polytechnic Columbus and IT Robotics are inviting the public to attend the first Columbus Tech Talk.

The event will be 6 p.m. Thursday in the Columbus Learning Center Auditorium, 4555 Central Ave., Columbus. It is open to anyone interested in or currently studying or working in robotics or biomechanics-related fields.

Lauro Ojeda, assistant research scientist in mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan, is the speaker. He will talk about his work using inertial measurement units in motion-tracking applications. IT Robotics also will demonstrate robotic technology at the event.

IT Robotics, which recently opened in North Vernon, has a long-standing relationship with Ojeda and specializes in industrial robot integration for applications in production sectors.

Space is limited, so attendees are encouraged to get a free ticket at
