New England - Rich In Robotic and Unmanned Systems Technologies
The New England Chapter of the Association of Unmanned Vehicles International is dedicated to professional development, networking, public outreach, and advocacy in support of robotic and unmanned systems with a particular focus on the New England region. While robotics have become common place in industrial manufacturing, the industry has evolved to cover land, air and maritime applications. New England has over 150 companies dedicated to the advancement, development and production of unmanned systems ranging from iRobot which produces the Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner to Boston Dynamics which is developing the Petman anthropomorphic robot. Applications range from household, to medical to civil to military and unmanned technologies can provide everything from cleaning services to search and rescue missions to saving lives by taking on what are today risky and life threatening jobs to study and enhance our world.
What is AUVSI?
AUVSI is the world's largest nonprofit organization devoted exclusively to advancing the unmanned systems and robotics community. With members from government organizations, industry and academia, the AUVSI fosters, develops, and promotes unmanned systems and robotic technologies. AUVSI provides opportunities for information exchange, networking and business development and is the best resource for simply learning about unmanned systems and robotics or for staying abreast of the latest program and technology updates.
The New England Chapter
Founded in 2012, the New England Chapter of AUVSI is still growing and developing the local community in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. There are many ways that you can get involved beginning with membership with AUVSI and the New England Chapter. Membership will provide you and companies in New England with opportunities to network, get involved with committees and events, and to support the growth of unmanned systems in New England.
Our membership is not limited to New England as many of our activities extend to other states and other companies. Please take a look at our Membership page to learn more about becoming a member of this Chapter and check back often as we work to develop and expand the content on this website.
