Clara Vu will discuss how her company’s technology is creating a world where humans and powerful industrial robots can work together in a truly collaborative setting. She'll describe the challenges that the industry currently faces regarding human and robot interaction, what is missing, and how Veo is solving it. Clara will speak to how this technology, such as 3D sensing and advanced computer vision algorithms, gives these robots the intelligence and perception they need to be aware of their surroundings and their human coworkers.
Clara is the co-founder and VP of Engineering at Veo Robotics, a company that brings advanced computer vision, 3D sensing, and AI to industrial robots, allowing them to work side-by-side with humans in manufacturing processes. She leads the engineering team and supports Veo Robotics’ product creation process and strategy. With over two decades of experience in robotics, Clara has developed multiple products from inception to market. Clara started her career at iRobot programming robots for oil well exploration; she then moved on to interactive toys and the Roomba. Prior to Veo, Clara was co-founder and director of software development for Harvest Automation, the makers of mobile robots for agricultural automation. Before that, Clara was a product management consultant at Rethink Robotics, where she first met Veo co-founder Patrick Sobalvarro. Clara holds a B.S. in Mathematics from Yale University.
