OMRON Electronics is one of the worlds leading suppliers of robotics hardware and software. They will have a display of working robotic arms and autonomous mobile robots to demonstrate applications for industry with Hawkes Bay's manufacturers and Agritech users. In addition Omron has collaberated with EIT in their development of the brand new Robotics Lab on EIT campus.

Join us and hear from David Downs on Tuesday 25 May at 5.30pm.  David will take us on a journey of what the future of agritech in NZ might look like.
