RRC Seminar – Winnispeed

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

2013-06-09-rrc-winnispeed

Title:

Winnispeed: Awesome Agility

Date:

June 9-13, 2013

Location:

Orange Lecture Theatre
Red River College Notre Dame Campus

Abstract:

JOE JUSTICE of Team WIKISPEED is being brought to Winnipeg this June 2013 to lead participants in the building of a car during the first workshop of its kind ever held in Canada: WINNISPEED. The 100+ mile-per-gallon prototype car that Team WIKISPEED created in just three months will be built from scratch on each of the two workshop days.

WIKISPEED has wowed participants in similar events around the world, most recently in Barcelona, Spain. This is a unique opportunity to work in an agile team with Joe Justice as Scrum Master and learn firsthand how Agile can transform your organization.

Sponsors will be offered preferred participation in one of the workshops and the closing banquet, as well as prominent acknowledgement on all promotional materials and in videos documenting the event.

Workshop participants will work directly with Joe Justice to build a car in a single day. During the workshops Joe Justice will explain the use of Extreme Manufacturing in Team WIKISPEED. Then you will have the chance to apply
the same concepts and methodologies to your own context (corporate innovation, small hardware/design start-up, service based startup, NGO, education, etc…).

RRC Seminar – Robotic Automation

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

2011_10_26_rrc

Title:

Robotic Automation and How it Can Enhance Your Bottom Line

Date:

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 from 8:30am-11:00am

Location:

Western Aviation Museum
958 Ferry Road, Winnipeg
Upper floor classroom

Speaker:

Michael Monnin
Product Manager, Robot & Vision
Wayne Trail Technologies, Loramie Ohio, USA

Abstract:

Join Red River College (RRC) on Oct. 26, 2011 at the Western Canadian Aviation Museum for a discussion about the latest in vision-enabled robotic technology from an international expert in the field of robotics and machinery vision.

Michael Monnin, Products Manager, Robots & Vision, Wayne Trail Technologies, will provide a practical guide of the technology currently available to manufacturers interested in more intelligent robot solutions.

Machine vision technology continues to advance in capability while the complexity and cost of these systems drops. At the same time, robot systems and software platforms have become more open to integration and device communication. The marriage of machine vision and robotic technology has never been easier or more cost effective and continues to prove easier to implement with a growing library of successful applications.

Attendees will leave this seminar with practical knowledge of vision-enabled robot technology, a clear understanding of the current trends in robotic vision, and an insight into the future of intelligent robotics.

Following the seminar, attendees will be invited to tour RRC’s Centre for Aerospace Technology and Training (CATT).

For more information on Michael and the topics to be covered at the seminar, please view the event flyer at the following link:
