Robotic Industries Association publishes Robotics Online which provides information to help engineers, managers and executives apply and justify robotics and flexible automation. The site includes a proprietary search engine algorithm that makes it easy to find and compare leading companies, products and services. Robotics Online is dedicated to news, articles and information specifically for the robotics industry.
RIA members contribute content, serve as experts for “Ask the Experts" and guide the Association with input from committees and volunteers that help write robot standards and technical reports. Publications, including safety standards and risk assessment software, are available from the online bookstore.
Founded in 1974, RIA is the only trade group in North America organized specifically to serve the robotics industry. Member companies include leading robot manufacturers, users, system integrators, component suppliers, research groups, and consulting firms.
