Where do you send your team when you are, at heart, a robotics software company? To Philadelphia in May to attend ICRA. The International Conference on Robotics and Automation is the flagship conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. Each year, it brings together the world’s top researchers and most important robotics companies to share their latest ideas and advances. Torc is proud to announce our sponsorship of ICRA in 2022, along with sending a team to exhibit and attend.

“We’re excited to be able to attend not just a national conference, but the international, benchmarking event in robotics and automation,” says Daniel Fernandez, Torc Engineering Manager in the BPC team. “Torc believes in sharing and learning on the worldwide scale. Speaking on behalf the eleven team members attending ICRA 2022 this year, we’d like to thank Justin Chong, Meghan Juanarena, and Andrew Bacha for their leadership, enabling so many of us to be in Philadelphia this week.”

Torc’s autonomy experts will be learning the state of the art advances in path-planning, trajectory optimization, motion control, localization, and more. Alongside engaging in a variety of workshops, seminars, plenaries, and competitions, as well as absorbing as much as possible to present to their colleagues back at home, Torc will be exhibiting at booth #501 in the main exhibition hall. “If you’re interested in learning more about the Torc mission, and our real-world application of autonomy in the trucking and freight environment, we urge ICRA 2022 attendees to come see us,” says Peyton Wimbish, Program Manager. “We’re changing the world.”
