Stressing the importance of smart cities, robotics, automation and innovation, Al Maidoor said, “This event shows the vital role of engineering in the robotics and automation industry. Robotics is the branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering and computer science that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing. These technologies deal with automated machines that can take the place of humans in dangerous environments or manufacturing processes, or resemble humans in appearance, behaviour, and/or cognition.”
