The ARM Institute is leading the way to a future where people and robots work together to respond to our nation’s greatest challenges and to develop and produce the world’s most desired products. Structured as a national consortium, ARM’s members span industry, academia, and government organizations. ARM integrates diverse industry best practices and institutional knowledge about robotics technologies across many disciplines to realize the promise of a robust manufacturing innovation ecosystem. Key focus areas include human-robot interaction, interoperability, artificial intelligence, reconfigurable, agile and flexible robotics systems, and easier technology adoption and risk reduction. ARM also works to prepare the U.S. workforce for Industry 4.0 careers working with robotics. In defining the robotics career pathways, ARM is working to expand the size, diversity, and skill set of the U.S. robotics workforce.
